And engine runs well, no smoke or any smell coming out.. So at this no worries, just checked oil regularly...

15w-40 is thicker than 5w-30. 15w-40 is mostly used in hot weather like summer in desert areas. It is thicker & may slow down the leakage. If you use it in very cold weather, it may be a little harder to start the car.
Thanks, ttagpine...that's what I thought, 15w-40 is better but took my car to where I bought and asked them what oil is best to used, they advice me to used 5w-30.. Not satisfied though. Checked Mazda website what recommended, it says 5w-30..
5w-30 is recommended for most cars. It's a good all-around oil & helps to get better fuel mileage. Your engine has a leak. I strongly suggest fixing the leak. If that's not an option, then a thicker oil might slow the leak. Stopleak is a last eff
Yes, leak has been done( 4 injection seal) and glad that no more leak at this time... That's why they recommend to used 5w-30.. Although, engine oil still going down a bit, so need to top up sometime.. Mechanic can't find anymore leak,,,
