Oil Change Q&A for Your 2002 Mazda B3000

  • What can low oil do to my Mazda B3000 engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Mazda B3000 engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Mazda B3000 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
