How Often to Change 2009 Saturn Aura Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2009 Saturn Aura? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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 having your 2009 Saturn Aura’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Aura in the above table. Outside of Saturn-recommended oil change intervals, your Aura may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Saturn recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. 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?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2009 Saturn Aura motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Saturn has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2009 Aura. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your Aura’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Aura by considering your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2009 Saturn Aura

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Saturn Aura? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Saturn Aura 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 Saturn Aura oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Saturn 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
