Saturn recommends having your 2000 Saturn LW2’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your LW2 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock 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, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Saturn LW2. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

2000 Saturn LW2 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Saturn LW2? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your LW2’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Saturn LW2 oil at home? 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. 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? 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, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
