When to Change 2003 Mazda MPV Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2003 Mazda MPV? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 2003 MPV’s oil should be changed according to Mazda’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your MPV in the above table. Your MPV 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 might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Mazda if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Mazda MPV. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Mazda MPV?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Mazda MPV. Mazda has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 2003 MPV. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your MPV’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential 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 preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2003 Mazda MPV

  • Should I check my Mazda MPV motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Mazda MPV engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Mazda oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
