Default Correct Oil

Hello,

I have a 1.3 2010 73000 due an oil change and I was just looking for some tips, some sites say 10w 40 a shop said 0w 20, but I thought 5w 30 was the way to go. Without my manual I can't check for sure but I was wondering what you all used please.

Thanks

Download a manual from Mazda's web site. In the UK my bet is the recommendation is either 5W-20 or 5W-30; you should not use 10W-40 under any circumstances, that oil is way too thick when cool and not thin enough when fully warm to allow for optimal engine efficiency.

Winter time 5w30, summer time 10w30. Either is ok year round. Just make sure it's a A3/B4 spec.
