How Often to Change 2021 Mazda CX-5 Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Mazda CX-5’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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 2021 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, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Mazda recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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 Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Mazda CX-5?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2021 Mazda CX-5 motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Mazda has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2021 CX-5. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your CX-5’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire 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.

2021 Mazda CX-5 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Mazda CX-5 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Mazda CX-5 engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Mazda CX-5 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
