When to Change 1996 Mazda Millenia Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1996 Mazda Millenia? 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.

Your 1996 Millenia’s oil should be changed according to Mazda’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Millenia 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 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. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Mazda Millenia. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Mazda Millenia Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Mazda Millenia. Mazda has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 1996 Millenia. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your Millenia's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Millenia by considering your driving style, and odometer.

1996 Mazda Millenia Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Mazda Millenia motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Mazda Millenia engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Mazda Millenia 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 professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Mazda exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
