How Often to Get 1995 Saturn SW1 Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Saturn SW1’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. 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 SW1’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your SW1 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock 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, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Saturn SW1. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Saturn SW1?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1995 Saturn SW1 motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Saturn has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 1995 Saturn SW1 vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your SW1's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your SW1 by considering your driving style, and odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1995 Saturn SW1

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Saturn SW1? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Saturn SW1 engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Saturn SW1 oil at home? 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. 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 SW1 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is 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 damaged cylinder walls.
