How Often to Get 2010 Saab 9-5 Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2010 Saab 9-5? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Saab recommends having your 2010 Saab 9-5’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your 9-5 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Saab recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Saab 9-5. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2010 Saab 9-5

  • Should I check my Saab 9-5 motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your 9-5’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Saab 9-5 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Saab exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
