When to Change 2012 Suzuki Kizashi Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2012 Suzuki Kizashi? Look no further than 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 2012 Kizashi’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Suzuki-recommended oil change intervals, your Kizashi may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Suzuki Kizashi. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Suzuki Kizashi Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2012 Suzuki Kizashi motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Suzuki has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2012 Kizashi. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your Kizashi’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Kizashi by considering your driving style, and odometer.

2012 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 reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Kizashi’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Suzuki oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
