Mazda 6 oil change

I have a 2005 mazda 6 TS (DPF) and I need to change oil.

Do I have to change the DPF cartridge or can I just change oil/filter?

    Mechanic changed the oil and cleaned DPF. He says he can`t see anything wrong with it and he hadn`t experienced the problem when he took it to a test drive. It blows out a lot of white/blue smoke and fuel consumption is really bad.

If DPF means Diesel Particulate Filter, no you don't need to change this cartridge. Somewhere near 120000Km you have to refill the additive tank with Eolys additive.

How do I get compression back? Please help


You could have bad rings, valves not sealing, or worse cracked cylinder or cracked head. If it was one of the last two then you would be losing oil/water, or oil and water would be mixed. Either way it needs to go to a machine shop.

It probably has some internal engine damage. If you pull the spark plugs one or more will probably be oil fouled.
You may want to have a compression test done and see if you can find the source of the oil - may be a head gasket.

Is it easy to change the oil filter ?


Yes its not very hard to replace the oil filter on mazda 6.You don't need a special tool. Use a 6mm allen to remove the filter drain plug. It will probably start to spin the filter housing. You can remove the housing by hand or with a regular oil filter wrench. ---------------- There is a step by step guide provided to replace oil filter on mazda 3.I am aware that yours is mazda 6,but still check the step by step guide to replace the oil filter on mazda 3.This will give you more help on replacing the oil filter.

The service shop left my oil cap off after an oil change. So far they have brought in 3 different caps, and none of them fit! Two came from parts stores and one from Mazda. I have a 2004 Mazda 6i 2.3L 4...


I had the same problem finding a replacement oil cap after my husband left the cap off. The usual auto parts stores didn't have one that fit. I had to order the cap through the dealership. The problem was that Mazda changed the oil cap midway through the production year. Try oil caps from the years on either side of yours: if you have a 2004 vehicle, try getting a 2003 and 2005 oil cap.

I have an 07 mazda speed6. If I took my car to


U cannot drive far without an oil filter, as the engine will not have any oil in it and will possibly lock up. there are a few engines that have cartridge style oil filters that this is possible on, but that will only result in simply your oil not being filtered. if your filter is an external filter. it is impossible to drive 4 months without it!
