When to Change 1998 Saab 900 Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1998 Saab 900? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 having your 1998 Saab 900’s motor oil changed 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 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 drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Saab 900. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

1998 Saab 900 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Saab 900? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, 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 900 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d 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 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
