Saab recommends having your 1987 Saab 9000’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your 9000 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Saab recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Saab 9000. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1987 Saab 9000 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Saab 9000? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Saab 9000 engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Saab 9000 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of 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, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
