2008 Saturn Aura Oil Change Service

How Often to Change 2008 Saturn Aura Oil

Need more info about 2008 Saturn Aura oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Saturn recommends changing your 2008 Aura’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Aura may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Saturn if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Saturn Aura. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Saturn Aura Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2008 Saturn Aura motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Saturn has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2008 Aura. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your Aura's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Aura by taking into account your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2008 Saturn Aura

  • Should I check my Saturn Aura motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Saturn Aura engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Saturn Aura 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Saturn Aura exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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.
