2007 Mazda 3 - Service engine soon light on. Was told you could turn your ignition key "X" number of times and it would self diagnose. True? How many times?

I am not sure about the key fix but check your engine oil for signs of water mix may be head gasket on way out look for milky mix on your dip stick and oil filler cap on the inside

The engine warning light wont go off, (Mazda 6) even after oil, water and coolant have been added. is it time for an oil change?

Yes it is time for an oil filter and oil change specially if there is a lapse of over 10 months or a mileage of more than 5000 miles clocked since the last oil change.

How to change oil in 2008 mazda 6

Get enough space from undeneath the car. Get a wrench ( most japs need a 17.. or 19mm) a plastic bowl of at least 5-6 lt capacity, get underneath the car, unscrew the bolt that is at the very bottom end of the engine, carefully at the last twisting mm's not to remove it quickly cause you'll make a mess, let the old oil drain to the bowl, get up, unscrew the top oil cap of the engine, let air get in and provide equal pressure to drain the oil completely, and when it happens, screw to bottom bolt back, tighten it and make sure the copper sealing ring is in good condition, ( otherwise change with new one to avoid leaks), fill with new oil fro above, taking filling indications every while, to make sure you filled the correct amount of oil, start the engine and wait untill the oil pressure warning red light turns off, turn off the engine, fill to the desired point, close the cap, and're done!!!

It sounds like you are looking at what is on the engine oil fill cap. If that's so, running it empty will absolutely cause major damage to your engine. Locate the dip stick and check the oil level in the engine and add SAE 5w-20 Oil as needed.CAUTION--- Be careful not to overfill.

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.

How do I change the oil filter on a MAZDA 6 4 CYL..

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.

Forgot to put my oil cap back on.

You need to get under your car and find where the oil cap fell. I have pulled many of these fantom noises out. They are usually at the bottum right above the egsaust pipes. where they cant fall to the ground. And may have some what melted to the engine. Did you go out and buy a new oil cap. Shou should have. Because on the new overhead valve engines, without a cap you are throwing oil out of the engine and making a nasty mess to clean up. Let me know how it goes or if you need more info.

Oil filter location

The oil filter is on the back side if the engine block under the intake manifold. You have to go between the fire wall and engine, it is tight in there. To get at it from the top of the engine bay I have to un-bolt and move the cruise control actuator and vacuum canister from around the passenger side shock tower & fire wall area. It helps to have a cap type oil filter wrench (65mm/14 flutes) with sockets and extensions. .
