When to Change 2020 Mazda CX-5 Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2020 Mazda CX-5? Turn to 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.

Your 2020 CX-5’s oil should be changed according to Mazda’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your CX-5 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, 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, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Mazda CX-5. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Mazda CX-5 Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2020 Mazda CX-5 motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Mazda has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2020 CX-5. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your CX-5’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your CX-5 by considering your driving preferences, and mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2020 Mazda CX-5

  • What can low oil do to my Mazda CX-5 engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, 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 CX-5 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. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Mazda CX-5 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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 the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
