How Often Should I Get My Oil Changed?

Oil change duration depends on a few factors. The first factor is what the owner’s manual says for your Mazda year and model. Another factor is the oil type in your Mazda. Finally, your driving conditions can affect oil longevity, which is why we customize oil change schedules for our customers. The general answer to this question, however, is every 3,000 miles.

Why Are My Brakes Squeaking?

Your brakes could be squeaking because your brake pads are getting too low and it’s time to replace them. Brake pads have sensors in them that do one of two things or both. The sensors will make squeaking sounds while your vehicle is in motion and then quiet down when you stop. They might also turn on your ABS or Brake dashboard warning light.

My AC Isn’t Blowing Cold Air! Why?

If you turn on your air conditioner only to feel warm air coming out of the vents, your refrigerant might be low, the condenser might be dying, or you may have an issue with the compressor. If you haven’t had your Mazda’s AC serviced in years, it’s time to do so.

Why Is My Car Overheating?

Cooling system trouble is usually the primary reason why your Mazda overheats, but it could also be a fuel pump issue, old or dirty motor oil, or more severe engine damage such as a blown head gasket. Your catalytic converter can also make your Mazda overheat.

What Fluid Is Leaking on My Garage Floor?

If the fluid leaking onto your garage floor is light brown or brown, it’s either motor oil or brake fluid. Red fluid can leak from the power steering reservoir or the transmission. Red, green, blue-green, yellow, or even orange fluid might be coolant. Blue is windshield washer fluid.
