Oil Change Q&A for Your 2011 Suzuki Grand Vitara

  • 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, these parts can grind together, overheat, 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? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. 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 exhaust smoke gray 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 worn cylinder walls.
