2003 Saturn L200 Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Saturn L200 engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Saturn L200 engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Saturn L200 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. 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 L200 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
