How Often to Get 1994 Mazda MX-6 Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1994 Mazda MX-6? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 1994 MX-6’s oil should be changed according to Mazda’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your MX-6 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. 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 at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Mazda MX-6. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Mazda MX-6. Mazda has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 1994 MX-6. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your MX-6's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your MX-6 by taking into account your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1994 Mazda MX-6 Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Mazda MX-6 motor oil level? 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-6 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-6 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 exhaust smoke gray 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. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
