1983 Saab 900 Oil Change

How Often to Get 1983 Saab 900 Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Saab 900’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 1983 900’s oil should be changed according to Saab’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 900 in the above table. Outside of Saab-recommended oil change intervals, your 900 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Saab if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Saab 900. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your 900’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your 900 by taking into account your driving habits, and mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1983 Saab 900

  • Should I check my Saab 900 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your 900’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Saab 900 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Saab 900 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
