Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2021 Mazda 6? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2021 6’s oil should be changed according to Mazda’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your 6 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Mazda recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Mazda 6. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2021 Mazda 6 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mazda 6? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Mazda 6 engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Mazda oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Mazda exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
