You may also need an oil change more frequently than Mazda recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds.

1992 Mazda MX-6 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Mazda MX-6 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Mazda MX-6 engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Mazda oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Mazda MX-6 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of 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, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
