Mazda Oil Change Guide

So, you’ve had your Mazda for a few months and that little light—the one shaped kind of like a genie lamp— has lit up your dash. That means it’s time for you to come in and get your vehicle’s oil changed.

Well, you’re in luck, because the technicians at Paretti Mazda are fully equipped to take care of all our friends in the Metairie, Harvey, and New Orleans, Louisiana, areas.

Oil Change

How Often Should I Change My Oil?

Most experts recommend you get your vehicle’s oil changed once every six months or 10,000 miles, whichever comes first. You should keep an eye on your odometer so you don’t miss these milestones, or you could even put a reminder in your phone’s calendar for when the time comes.

If you’ve forgotten what mileage marker you’re at or you didn’t write down the date, that’s fine! Just come in and we’ll get everything checked out for you.

How Long Should an Oil Change Take?

The average oil change should only take about half an hour. During this time, the technicians will empty out your vehicle’s old, dirty oil—the oil will get dirty through the course of everyday driving and is totally normal.

Once the old oil is emptied, then the technicians will add in new oil appropriate for your vehicle’s make and model. And that’s it. That’s all it takes.

Checking Oil

Why Do I Need to Change My Oil?

Think of your Mazda like a living creature: The wheels are the feet, the cabin is the body, and the engine is the heart. And what does the heart need to keep beating? Blood. Thinking of it in this way makes it easy to see why it’s important to have fresh, clean oil running through your engine.

Just as you need to keep your heart healthy, you need to keep your engine healthy, too. But instead of a good diet and exercise, your vehicle needs regular oil changes.
