Short TRip Driving
engine oil
In order to improve engine starting performance on restart, DO NOT turn
off a cold engine until one or more of the variable red zones in tachometer
have turned off. Warm the engine until the first indicator of the variable red
zone goes off.
Check engine oil level when refueling
Red Zone
By design, rotary engines consume a small amount of oil to lubricate
internal engine components. Use the oil dipstick to inspect the oil level
when refueling. If the level is near or below the low mark, add oil to bring
the level to full.
A Engine Oil Dipstick
Open the service cover to access the engine oil dipstick. If engine oil
is needed, add as required.
Full
Variable Red Zone
A beep sound indicates an engine over-rev
when the tachometer needle enters
striped zone. The variable red zone in the
tachometer changes according to the
temperature of engine coolant. When engine
coolant temperature is low, the engine does
not run at higher speeds, and the fuel supply
will be at a lower RPM than in the red zone.
Instant mobility system (IMS)
The IMS emergency flat tire repair kit included
with your Mazda is for a temporary repair
of a slightly damaged flat tire resulting from
running over nails or similar sharp objects
on the road surface. Refer to your Owner’s
Manual for complete details.
