Mazda recommends having your 2010 Mazda MX-5 Miata’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Mazda-recommended oil change intervals, your MX-5 Miata may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, 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, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Mazda MX-5 Miata. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2010 Mazda MX-5 Miata Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Mazda MX-5 Miata motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your MX-5 Miata’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Mazda MX-5 Miata oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, 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. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
