Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2003 Mazda Miata? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”
Mazda recommends changing your 2003 Miata’s oil 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 knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of 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 Miata. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.
Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Mazda Miata. Mazda has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2003 Miata. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, 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, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Miata by considering your driving style, weather and road conditions,
