How Often to Get 1993 Saab 900 Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1993 Saab 900? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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 changing your 1993 900’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your 900 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of 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 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1993 Saab 900

  • What can low oil do to my Saab 900 engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Saab 900 engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil 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 also help your car perform 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. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
