Mazda recommends changing your 1990 RX-7’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your RX-7 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Mazda recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. 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.

1990 Mazda RX-7 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mazda RX-7? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Mazda RX-7 engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Mazda RX-7 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
