1996 Mazda B4000 Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Mazda B4000 engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Mazda B4000 engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Mazda B4000 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Mazda B4000 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
