Here are the most common signs that it’s time for an oil change:
- Issues When Idling: When your car is idling, excess pressure is placed on the engine. If you start to notice your car shaking while your vehicle is idling, it may be time for an oil change.
- Odd Sounds: There are several different unfamiliar sounds your vehicle may make that indicate you need an oil change or an engine inspection. In particular, if you notice any loud clanging noises coming from your engine area or a ticking sound when you start your car, you should bring your new Mazda3 in right away.
- Low Oil Level: Adding extra oil to your car in between oil changes is recommended. However, if your oil level is falling regularly, it’s time for an inspection.
- Excess Exhaust: If you notice extra fumes coming from your vehicle’s exhaust pipe, this may be an indicator that your oil is old and needs to be replaced. This can also be a sign of more serious issues like a cracked gasket.
