How Often to Change 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara Oil

Need more info about 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of 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 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara’s motor oil changed 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 knock knock knock 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 terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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’s the Right Type of Oil for 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Suzuki has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2006 Grand Vitara.

In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your Grand Vitara’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Grand Vitara by taking into account your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Suzuki Grand Vitara motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Grand Vitara’s engine to fail. 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. 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 with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Suzuki Grand Vitara spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
