How Often to Get 1991 Mazda Miata Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Mazda Miata’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just 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.

Mazda recommends having your 1991 Mazda Miata’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Miata may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Mazda recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Mazda Miata. 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 Miata Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1991 Mazda Miata motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Mazda has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 1991 Miata. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your Miata's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1991 Mazda Miata

  • What can low oil do to my Mazda Miata engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Miata’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Mazda Miata oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Mazda exhaust smoke gray or blue? 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, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
