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 2002 LW300’s oil should be changed according to Saturn’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your LW300 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 terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Saturn LW300. 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.

2002 Saturn LW300 Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Saturn LW300 engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your LW300’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 LW300 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 exhaust smoke gray 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 the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
