Oil Changes for 1985 Mazda RX-7

How Often to Get 1985 Mazda RX-7 Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Mazda RX-7’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 1985 RX-7’s oil should be changed according to Mazda’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your RX-7 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, 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, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Mazda RX-7 Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1985 Mazda RX-7 motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care.

You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving habits, and mileage.

1985 Mazda RX-7 Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Mazda RX-7 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Mazda RX-7 engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Mazda oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Mazda RX-7 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
