How Often to Change 2013 Suzuki Grand Vitara Oil

Need more info about 2013 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, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 2013 Grand Vitara’s oil should be changed according to Suzuki’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Suzuki-recommended oil change intervals, your Grand Vitara may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess 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, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Suzuki Grand Vitara. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2013 Suzuki Grand Vitara

  • What can low oil do to my Suzuki Grand Vitara engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Suzuki Grand Vitara engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • 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 buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Suzuki Grand Vitara exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
