How Often to Get 1990 Mazda 626 Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Mazda 626’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just 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.”

Your 1990 626’s oil should be changed according to Mazda’s recommended oil change 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, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Mazda if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Mazda 626. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1990 Mazda 626 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mazda 626? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Mazda 626 engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Mazda 626 oil at home? 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Mazda exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
