Suzuki recommends having your 2003 Suzuki Grand Vitara’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table.

2003 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 runs low, 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.
  • How hard is it to change Suzuki Grand Vitara oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Suzuki Grand Vitara exhaust smoke grayish 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, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
