Mechanic checking oil level on car for Mazda Maintenance Schedule

If you want to keep your Mazda vehicle in like-new condition on the roads of Saipan, keeping up with proper maintenance is a must. If you are not sure when to bring your vehicle in for specific Mazda maintenance tasks, the team at Triple J Saipan is here to help. Let’s take a brief look at maintenance schedules for some common Mazda models. You can also consult your owner’s manual for additional information.

Keep in mind that for a Mazda, the maintenance schedule fluctuates based on whether you set the “Oil Change” maintenance monitor to “Flexible” or “Fixed.” While the necessary tasks are the same, the frequency changes.

Mazda3 Maintenance Schedule

  • Every Year: Inspect your disc brakes
  • Every Two Years: Inspect fuel lines/hoses, brake lines, hoses and connections, steering operation, front and rear suspension, driveshaft dust boost, and tighten bolts and nuts and chassis and body
  • Every Three Years: Inspect the drive belts
  • Every Four Years: Inspect the hoses and tubes for emission and exhaust system and heat shields
  • On a “Flexible” oil change monitor setting: Oil should be replaced when the wrench indicator is ON. The engine air filter and cabin air filter should also be replaced at the same time. These tasks should happen every 12 months / 10,000 miles.
