1994 Saturn SW2 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Saturn SW2? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Saturn SW2 engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Saturn SW2 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. 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. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
