Oil Change Q&A for Your 2009 Mazda MX-5 Miata

  • What can low oil do to my Mazda MX-5 Miata engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Mazda MX-5 Miata engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil 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. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Mazda MX-5 Miata 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, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
