Mazda Miata Engine Oil Capacity

Mazda Miata Oil Capacity

When it comes to choosing the best motor oil for your Mazda Miata, there are a few factors you need to consider. The type of driving you do, the age and make of your car, and even the climate in which you live all play a role in what type of oil is best for your vehicle.

That said, there are some general guidelines that can help you choose the right motor oil for your Miata. For example, if you drive your car mainly on short trips around town, then oil with a higher viscosity (thicker) would be best. This will help keep your engine lubricated during start-ups when the engine is cold.

How Much Oil Does a Mazda Miata Take?

2.0L Mazda MX-5 Miata takes 4.5 quarts of 0W-20 oil with a filter.

Your Mazda vehicle runs on pure oil from Mazda. Your vehicle requires genuine Mazda 0W-20 Oil to maximize fuel efficiency. For regular maintenance, use genuine Mazda components and Castrol (the U.S.A. only).

The International Lubricant Standardization and Approval Committee (ILSAC), which is made up of American and Japanese automobile firms, has certified this trademark symbol regarding engine and emission system protection standards and fuel economy requirements.

The best way to check your oil level is when the engine has been off for five minutes. The best time to change your oil is between 4000 and 7000 miles, although you should follow the manufacturer’s recommendations found in your car manual. If it needs an immediate change then a good rule of thumb is that if it smells burnt or there are visible particles on top of the oil, have it changed immediately.

Mazda Miata owners only need about four quarts unless they’re going racing where up to seven might be required depending on how many laps they do during a race weekend.
