How Often to Change 2010 Mazda RX-8 Oil

Need more info about 2010 Mazda RX-8 oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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 2010 RX-8’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-8 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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-8. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Mazda RX-8?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2010 Mazda RX-8 motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Mazda has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2010 RX-8. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs 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 courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your RX-8 by considering your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2010 Mazda RX-8 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Mazda RX-8 motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your RX-8’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Mazda RX-8 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Mazda RX-8 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
