How Often to Get 1994 Saab 900 Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Saab 900’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at 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 changing your 1994 900’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your 900 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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 drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

1994 Saab 900 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Saab 900? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, 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.
  • How hard is it to change Saab 900 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 900 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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 old cylinder walls.
