How Often to Change 1995 Saturn SL Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1995 Saturn SL? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Saturn recommends changing your 1995 SL’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Saturn-recommended oil change intervals, your SL may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Saturn recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Saturn SL. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Saturn SL Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1995 Saturn SL motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Saturn has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 1995 SL. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your SL’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your SL by considering your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1995 Saturn SL

  • What can low oil do to my Saturn SL engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Saturn SL engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Saturn oil on my own? 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Saturn SL exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
