2016 Mazda CX-5 GT AWD w/Tech Pkg
- Plano, Texas, USA
I'm usually getting Mazda parts from my Mazda dealer with 20% off from MSRP. Our previous sponsor Med Center Mazda should have it too. Or try mazdastuff.com used by bob ross.Where are you guys buying this stuff as I have checked a few Mazda sites and they don't have it.
Spark plug structure looked identical although there seemed to be some different metal coloring on OEM. I was so mad they sent me NGK, I really didn't look at them much beyond wrapping and shipping back!
I did not trust myself to drop the pan and seal - so I had a mechanic do it. It took him some time. The fluid looked worn, but not burnt. I can't comment on color.
I suspect it was under filled from factory. I bought 2 bottle per recommendation on this forum. I chose the more expensive lube since I will not do this same service until 150k and judging how the car was running - that's about the limit. IMO of course.
