2013 Mazda CX-9 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Mazda CX-9 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-9 engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Mazda CX-9 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. 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-9 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. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
