Not sure how or where to get your Mazda RX-8’s oil changed? Look no further than 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, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.
Mazda recommends changing your 2004 RX-8’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your RX-8 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Mazda if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Mazda RX-8. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.
Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2004 Mazda RX-8 motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Mazda has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2004 RX-8. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your RX-8’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.
