When to Change 2000 Saturn SL1 Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Saturn SL1’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.”

Your 2000 SL1’s oil should be changed according to Saturn’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your SL1 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Saturn recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Saturn SL1. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2000 Saturn SL1 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Saturn SL1? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your SL1’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Saturn SL1 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce 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, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
