Oil Changes for 2006 Saturn Relay

How Often to Change 2006 Saturn Relay Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Saturn Relay’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. 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.”

Saturn recommends having your 2006 Saturn Relay’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Saturn-recommended oil change intervals, your Relay may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Saturn recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Saturn Relay. 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Saturn Relay Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Saturn Relay. Saturn has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2006 Relay. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your Relay’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving style, weather and road conditions,

2006 Saturn Relay Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Saturn Relay? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Saturn Relay engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Saturn Relay oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Saturn exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
