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 1999 Grand Vitara’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Grand Vitara may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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 go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Suzuki Grand Vitara. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

1999 Suzuki Grand Vitara Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Suzuki Grand Vitara engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Suzuki Grand Vitara engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Suzuki Grand Vitara oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. 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. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
