Mazda recommends having your 2004 Mazda MPV’s motor oil changed at regular 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, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

2004 Mazda MPV Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mazda MPV? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Mazda MPV engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • 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 figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 MPV exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
