2011 Suzuki Kizashi Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Suzuki Kizashi motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Kizashi’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 Kizashi 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
