Mazda recommends having your 2021 Mazda CX-3’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your CX-3 in the above table. No matter the mileage, your CX-3 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Mazda recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Mazda CX-3. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2021 Mazda CX-3 Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Mazda CX-3 engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Mazda CX-3 engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • 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 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 CX-3 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of 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 old cylinder walls.
