Hello guys,
Recently bought 2012 Mazda3 Hatch 2.0 with Skyactive engine and 6 speed automatic transmission. As I want to change the oil, i just don't know if i bought the correct filter :(
I bought Mobil1 M1-102, but as I'm reading and watching some DIY videos, folks are mentioning M1-108 oil filter.
Can you please tell me which one is correct for this car and engine?
I'm also confused from four different engine types as I was shopping at AutoZone or other websites, all giving you an option to choose from 4 different types of engines based on VIN number.
These are 4 options:

  • I - L4 - 2.0L 1998cc 122ci GAS MFI vin 8 - 4 valve DOHC
  • I - L4 - 2.0L 1998cc 122ci GAS MFI vin 7 - 4 valve DOHC
  • I - L4 - 2.0L 2000cc 122ci GAS MFI vin F - 4 valve DOHC
  • I - L4 - 2.0L 2000cc 122ci GAS MFI vin G - 4 valve DOHC
Neither one is mentioning Skyactive, so I don't even know which one from these I have or if I have iTouring or iGrand Touring model.
Thank you very much for your help everybody :)

Hmm, looking at it, my VIN has a couple of 8's in it, but none of the other ones, meaning no 7, G nor F.
So is it the type 8? What number in the VIN should I be looking at?
Thank you for your help :)
