Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1991 Saab 9000? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Saab recommends having your 1991 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 knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Saab recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Saab 9000. 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.

1991 Saab 9000 Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Saab 9000 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Saab 9000 engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • 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. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform 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, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
