Your 1995 9000’s oil should be changed according to Saab’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your 9000 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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 terrain, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. 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.

Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your 9000's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving habits, and odometer.

1995 Saab 9000 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Saab 9000? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your 9000’s 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? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Saab 9000 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
