Just got a 16' cx5 with 26k... calls for 0-20.. check

What filter do you use on these? Should I order a mazda brand online? I always try to stick with matching brands for filters (delco, motorcraft, mopar etc...)

Would wix be ok for this? Our first mazda so not sure if there have been issues with different brands?

Also, some of the filters on rock auto say "factory filled synthetic oil"... what in God's name does this mean?

Also I've heard of people online saying they use Liqui-moly oil.. what's this? Will pennzoil synthetic or Mobil 1 work just as well? Or even walmart brand synthetic for that matter ?

Boy this is a new world to me.

.

It just means that when the car was brand new the manufacturer filled the engine with a synthetic oil,I think it's more a recommendation to try to get you to buy a synthetic oil with the filter.

Go with any major brand of 0w20. The Mazda filter can be purchased at the dealer.

I’ve ran Valvoline and Havoline synthetic in mine. Run a 5k oci if you short trip a lot and 7.5k if you drive mainly highway miles.

Factory fill is Idemitsu. Idemitsu premium brand is Zepro. You can get Mazda Moly 0W-20 at a dealer for about the same as Zepro Advanced Moly on Amazon. I get Mazda oil filters at the dealer. Some dealers sell a cheaper Mazda Value Line filter too. Owner manual recommends Castrol but dealer bulk is Total. Don’t forget the crush washer.

I have 3 used oil analysis that demonstrate that Pennzoil Platinum in 0w20 & 5w30, with a OEM or WIX filter is a very good combination for my 2.5L 2014 CX5. Ed

I agree. 145,000 miles on my 2015 Mazda 6 when I sold it with PP 0w-20 being used for most il of that time. And a Mobile 1 oil filter, #108 I think. I did have a wix filter seep oil on it so I switch to the Mobile 1 filter.

I've been running M1 AFE 0-20 and either M1 filter or Fram Tough Guard filters on my CX-5. No issues at all. Recently switched to Penn Platinum, and it seems to like that, too. Wix filters have been used on my other vehicles without any problems at all.

Do these need replaced every change? If so does advance or oreillys or anywhere like that sell them?

I'm guessing any dorman oil crush washer or something will work.. can I just buy one of those drain plugs that have a built in rubber gasket on it so I dont have to worry about it?

change the washer every oil change and check the plug as well.
