    When I am ready to do my oil change I want to use the right wrench for the filter. Is it a cap style wrench that you attach to the socket wrench? Also my car is a lease what oil and filter would ya recommend for a budget oil change? Since it's a lease I don't wanna spend a crazy amount of...

    My maintenance icon (little amber wrench) has been coming on recently for no apparent reason. It will come on when I start the car and then stays on, then usually is gone the next time I start it. I have no outstanding maintenance notifications, so what's the deal? I'm thinking of going in soon...

    I just had my oil change done 2 days ago, but I see the wrench icon on the control panel. It was displayed on and off last month, so I thought may be because of I am due on oil change though the level says that I am at 40%, so why it would show now? I have just 7000 miles on it with two oil...

    My maintenance light (wrench symbol) on the dash lit up today. I checked the maintenance guidance on the nav system and there is no service interval low enough to trigger it. I just had the oil changed last week and my tire rotation is at 830 miles (and it shouldn't come on until 250 miles). Any...

    So I took my 2014 S Grand Touring in for the 5k service and the dealer didn't turn off the icon on my display. Is there some way to do it or do I have to take it back?

    I have the 2014 Mazda 3 i Sport, I am trying to figure out how to set the oil change intervals. I see the wrench when i first turn on the car, but I can't find how to set it. Is this preset to a Schedule already? I can't find anything in the manual to point me in the right direction. Any...

    This is the oil filter wrench the techs at the Mazda dealership use. On some Mazda vehicles (my 2013 Mazda3 i Skyactiv, for example) there is no clearance through the access door in the underbody panel to use an adjustable strap wrench. This is the best and easiest-to-use tool (in combination...

    I am planning on getting an oil change done here soon. I talked to my families mechanic/oil change place and they did not know if the 2010 has a plastic housing cap or not. Does anyone know? They are also having troubles finding a oil filter number in their computer, any idea on a good one...

    I am looking to get a wrench for my oil filter housing. I was curious how trustworthy universal wrenches are or if it would be wise to get the specific wrench for the housing?
