Oil Change Q&A for Your 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mazda MX-5 Miata? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Mazda MX-5 Miata 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? 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Mazda MX-5 Miata spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
