Mazda recommends having your 1994 Mazda MX-3’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your MX-3 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 see an excess amount of vehicle 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, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Mazda MX-3. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1994 Mazda MX-3 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Mazda MX-3 motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Mazda MX-3 engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Mazda MX-3 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 MX-3 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
