How Often to Get 1992 Mazda Miata Oil Changes

Need more info about 1992 Mazda Miata oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of 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 changing your 1992 Miata’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Mazda-recommended oil change intervals, your Miata may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, 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, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Mazda Miata. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

1992 Mazda Miata Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mazda Miata? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Mazda Miata 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? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Mazda exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
