Not sure how or where to get your Mazda 626’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties.

Mazda recommends changing your 1991 626’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Mazda-recommended oil change intervals, your 626 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Mazda recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Mazda 626. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

1991 Mazda 626 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mazda 626? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your 626’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Mazda 626 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Mazda 626 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
