Oil Change Q&A for Your 1998 Mazda B3000

  • What can low oil do to my Mazda B3000 engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Mazda B3000 engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Mazda B3000 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Mazda B3000 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
