When to Change 2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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 having your 2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Grand Vitara 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 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, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Suzuki Grand Vitara. 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 Grand Vitara Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Suzuki Grand Vitara. Suzuki has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2002 Grand Vitara. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your Grand Vitara's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving preferences, and odometer.

2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Suzuki Grand Vitara engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Suzuki Grand Vitara engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Suzuki Grand Vitara oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. 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? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
