When to Change 2009 Suzuki Grand Vitara Engine Oil

Need more info about 2009 Suzuki Grand Vitara oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just 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 changing your 2009 Grand Vitara’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Suzuki-recommended oil change intervals, your Grand Vitara may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Suzuki recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. 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.

2009 Suzuki Grand Vitara Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Suzuki Grand Vitara motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, 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.
  • 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 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 help your car perform 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. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
