Oil Change Q&A for Your 1994 Mazda 626

  • What can low oil do to my Mazda 626 engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Mazda 626 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. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Mazda 626 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
