Mazda recommends having your 2005 Mazda RX-8’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your RX-8 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, 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, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Mazda RX-8. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.
