2002 Suzuki Aerio Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Suzuki Aerio? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Suzuki Aerio engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Suzuki Aerio oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Suzuki exhaust smoke gray 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. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
