2010 Saturn Vue Oil Change Service

When to Change 2010 Saturn Vue Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2010 Saturn Vue? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about 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 having your 2010 Saturn Vue’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Vue in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Vue may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Saturn if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2010 Saturn Vue motor oil: either synthetic or conventional.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2010 Saturn Vue

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Saturn Vue? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Saturn Vue engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Saturn Vue oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. 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 Vue spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
