Oil Changes for 1984 Saab 900

When to Change 1984 Saab 900 Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1984 Saab 900? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of 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.”

Your 1984 900’s oil should be changed according to Saab’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your 900 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle 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, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. 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.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Saab 900?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1984 Saab 900 motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Saab has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 1984 900. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your 900’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your 900 by taking into account your driving style, and odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1984 Saab 900

  • What can low oil do to my Saab 900 engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Saab 900 engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Saab oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce 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 900 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro 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.
