How Often to Change 1995 Saturn SL2 Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Saturn SL2’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Saturn recommends having your 1995 Saturn SL2’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your SL2 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Saturn SL2. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1995 Saturn SL2

  • What can low oil do to my Saturn SL2 engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your SL2’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Saturn SL2 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Saturn SL2 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
