How Often to Change 2002 Suzuki Esteem Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Suzuki Esteem’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Suzuki recommends having your 2002 Suzuki Esteem’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Esteem in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Esteem 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 excess vehicle 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 long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Suzuki Esteem. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Suzuki Esteem Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2002 Suzuki Esteem motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Suzuki has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2002 Esteem. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your Esteem’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Esteem by taking into account your driving style, and odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2002 Suzuki Esteem

  • What can low oil do to my Suzuki Esteem engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, 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 Esteem 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. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Suzuki exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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.
