How Often to Get 2017 Mazda CX-3 Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2017 Mazda CX-3? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 changing your 2017 CX-3’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your CX-3 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Mazda CX-3. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2017 Mazda CX-3 Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Mazda CX-3 engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Mazda CX-3 engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Mazda CX-3 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Mazda CX-3 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
