How Often to Change 2009 Suzuki Equator Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Suzuki Equator’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 2009 Equator’s oil should be changed according to Suzuki’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Suzuki-recommended oil change intervals, your Equator may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Suzuki recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Suzuki Equator. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2009 Suzuki Equator?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2009 Suzuki Equator motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Suzuki has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2009 Equator. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your Equator's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Equator by taking into account your driving style, weather and road conditions,

2009 Suzuki Equator Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Suzuki Equator motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Equator’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Suzuki Equator oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil 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 Equator exhaust smoke grayish 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, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
