After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Mazda recommends having your 1998 Mazda B2500’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Mazda-recommended oil change intervals, your B2500 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, 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, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Mazda B2500. 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1998 Mazda B2500

  • What can low oil do to my Mazda B2500 engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Mazda B2500 engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Mazda oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Mazda B2500 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
