Your 2017 CX-5’s oil should be changed according to Mazda’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your CX-5 in the above table. No matter the mileage, your CX-5 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Mazda recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Mazda CX-5.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2017 Mazda CX-5

  • Should I check my Mazda CX-5 motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your CX-5’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Mazda oil on my own? 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Mazda CX-5 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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.
