When to Change 1984 Mazda RX-7 Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1984 Mazda RX-7? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 1984 RX-7’s oil should be changed according to Mazda’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Mazda-recommended oil change intervals, your RX-7 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Mazda if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Mazda RX-7. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1984 Mazda RX-7 Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Mazda RX-7 engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your RX-7’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Mazda RX-7 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 RX-7 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro 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.
