2006 Suzuki Forenza Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Suzuki Forenza engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Suzuki Forenza 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 Forenza oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Suzuki exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
