It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2004 Vue’s oil should be changed according to Saturn’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Vue may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, 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 terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Saturn Vue. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2004 Saturn Vue Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Saturn Vue motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Saturn Vue engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Saturn Vue oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Saturn exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
