2002 Saturn L200 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Saturn L200? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Saturn L200 engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Saturn oil on my own? 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Saturn L200 exhaust smoke grayish 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
