Which oil and coolant???
« on: March 15, 2020, 10:58:36 am »
Good morning peeps. Got an oil change coming up, and I'll be doing them myself from now on. I'm looking for recommendations for which oil you guys use, either manufacturer recommended or a good quality alternative. Also, after having my CX-5 for nearly 2 years, I've noticed the coolant level has dropped, probably just under 1cm in that time, so what coolant do i need to top up or do a complete change. Thanks in advance

Can't help with the coolant but I have bought the genuine Mazda DPF oil on EBay. Comes from Vospers who are a Mazda dealer.
Be careful if you get a filter as the first time I was supplied the wrong one.
Note you need to buy 6 litres (5 + 1) as the book says 5.1 litres but elsewhere I found 5.2 litres  (assuming you replace the filter at the same time). 5 Litres just reaches the dipstick. No problem for me as i am on full lockdown and cannot go anywhere for a while.
