How Often to Get 1991 Saab 900 Oil Changes

Need more info about 1991 Saab 900 oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Saab recommends having your 1991 Saab 900’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Saab-recommended oil change intervals, your 900 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, 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 go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Saab 900. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1991 Saab 900 Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Saab 900 engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Saab 900 engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Saab oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil 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 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. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
