Saturn recommends having your 2004 Saturn L300’s motor oil changed 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 knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Saturn if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Saturn L300. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2004 Saturn L300 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Saturn L300 motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your L300’s engine to fail. 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? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
