We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2001 LW200’s oil should be changed according to Saturn’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2001 Saturn LW200

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Saturn LW200? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Saturn LW200 engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Saturn LW200 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
