Best is to fill about 5 litres and start the vehicle.While idling fill oil in 500 ml incriments while checking the level in between.Each vehicle seems to have a mind of its own.I have had no experience with Comma oils.Most effective would be to replace the transmission filter at the same time and there will always be a little oil left in the tourque converter hence the high volume in your manual.

Hi! What I've done in the past is purchase two 5 litre containers of the correct grade oil then carefully topped up until just showng below Max level on dipstick I run the car briefly to check for leaks and to fill up new oil filter I let it settle on level ground with engine switched off then top up slowly to correct level, Oh I think you'll find 6 litres is the Norm!
Hapy New Year!

SOURCE: engine coolant
you need maybe 1+1/2 gallon of distilled water;NOT TAP WATER and 1 gallon of Mazda Coolant; NOT 50/50 mix..
((WHEN THE ENGINE/COOLANT IS COOL>>VERY IMPORTANT!!!))
1.from the radiator, remove the drain plug, let it drain. for faster drain, also remove the resevoir cap.
2.when empty, put drain plug back on refill the resevior with the distilled water until full.
3.with the resevior cap off start engine with heat settings on Hi, until the coolant temp guage begin to rise or when thermostat opens. turn off engine.
4. repeat steps 1-3 until only clear water drains.
5.make sure drain plug is in, refill resevior with Mazda coolant til about half way (in case there's any expansion), do not put cap on yet, let the air bleed. start engine, let it run for 5 min.
6. accelerate in park/neutral to 2500RPM's (DO NOT drive yet) to help bleed the air keep an eye on coolant level because you will have to top it off.
7.check level as temp reaches normal; half point as usual. put resevior cap on drive around the block and check level again. make sure coolant is on the proper level; "F" or "MAX"...of course when the engine cools it will be below, but while the temp is normal it should be on the proper level.
