Give your 626’s engine a little TLC with routine oil changes. Schedule your next appointment today.
Not sure how or where to get your Mazda 626’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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.”
Mazda recommends having your 1988 Mazda 626’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your 626 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Mazda recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Mazda 626. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.
Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Mazda 626. Mazda has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 1988 626. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your 626’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your 626 by taking into account your driving style, weather and road conditions,
