Saturn recommends changing your 2003 L300’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your L300 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Saturn L300. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2003 Saturn L300

  • What can low oil do to my Saturn L300 engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your L300’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Saturn oil on my own? 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Saturn L300 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
