What Kind of Oil Does a Mazda Take?

February 12th, 2022 by


When getting your Mazda serviced, or when servicing it yourself, it’s important to provide the engine with the oil it needs to continue running smoothly. Mazda recommends its own brand of synthetic motor oil, especially for use in Mazda cars and SUVs with a Skyactiv® engine. This is because Mazda’s genuine oil is specially tuned to work in their engines, leading to longer life and better performance if you use their oil.

If you absolutely cannot find Mazda oil, you can try Mobil 1 SAE oil, Valvoline SynPower SAE motor oil, or Castrol Syntec European Formula SAE motor oil. You can also refer to your Mazda’s owner’s manual to see what other oils it recommends.

What’s the Difference Between Synthetic and Conventional Oil?

When deciding between conventional and synthetic motor oil for your Mazda oil change, remember that all oil is different regardless of the category it falls under. However, a good rule of thumb is to remember that conventional, or traditional, oil is simply refined crude. Synthetic oil is specifically engineered to provide lubrication and smoothness where your car’s engine needs it most, and is highly resistant to very high and very low temperatures, maintaining its integrity much longer than conventional oil.
