2014 Mazda MX-5 Miata Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mazda MX-5 Miata? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, 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.
  • How hard is it to change Mazda MX-5 Miata oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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 worn cylinder walls.
