How Often to Get 2001 Suzuki Esteem Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2001 Suzuki Esteem? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.”

Suzuki recommends changing your 2001 Esteem’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Esteem 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 might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Suzuki if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Suzuki Esteem. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2001 Suzuki Esteem Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Suzuki Esteem? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Suzuki Esteem engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Suzuki oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Suzuki Esteem exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
