2000 Suzuki Grand Vitara Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Suzuki Grand Vitara motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, 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.
  • Can I change my Suzuki Grand Vitara oil at home? 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Suzuki exhaust smoke gray 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
