Oil Changes for 2007 Saturn Ion

How Often to Change 2007 Saturn Ion Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Saturn Ion’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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 2007 Saturn Ion’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Ion in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Ion may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Saturn recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Saturn Ion. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2007 Saturn Ion Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Saturn Ion engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Ion’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Saturn Ion oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. 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 with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Saturn exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
