Question about Mazda Cars & Trucks

Have the oil changed as it is wrong viscosity oil. It should be 20w -40 or 15w 30. Mixing synthetic and mineral oils is not a good idea as the bases are different and may cause engine problems. Most service departments use mineral oil as synthetic oil is too dear for a normal service and the customer would complain about the price.. Synthetic oil has no real advantage over mineral oil unless you are rallying or racing but in normal driving it is an expensive waste as you have to change the oil at least every 10.000klms to remove the wasted additives the hold water ,carbon, and other combustion by products in suspension to be removed when the oil is drained out.

5w 30 is much thinner than 10w 30. Most newer vehicles require 5w30
I personally like synthetic oils because the viscocity adjusts with the temperature in all climates and weather. No need to change every season

0w30 oil is likely Amsoil? If so, even though the manufacturer may not recommend it, it does and will work well in your engine. it is far more thermally stable than conventional oil, resists molecular shear and is far less susceptible to problems from contamination. It pours like puppy **** even when its way below freezing and offers far beyond the protection "at temperature" that the 30 designation infers. i suggest you google "noac volatility tests" and make your decision based upon the facts stated there! You may be surprised at what you find!!

Royal Purple is compatible with fully synthetic oils so you can change over with no damage to your engine. You can go to the official site and they can give you all the options as far as what your looking for specifically.

follow the manual.
but if the dealer has recommended the lower grade, and you want to save cost use it. just make sure that its in black and white that they recommended the lower grade.
