Saturn recommends having your 2000 Saturn LW1’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your LW1 in the above table. No matter the mileage, your LW1 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Saturn LW1. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2000 Saturn LW1 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Saturn LW1? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your LW1’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Saturn LW1 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Saturn LW1 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
