2006 Mazda MX-5 Miata Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mazda MX-5 Miata? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Mazda MX-5 Miata engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Mazda MX-5 Miata oil at home? 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Mazda exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
