How Often to Get 2008 Suzuki Reno Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2008 Suzuki Reno? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2008 Reno’s oil should be changed according to Suzuki’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Reno may need its oil changed ASAP 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 may also need an oil change more frequently than Suzuki recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Suzuki Reno. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Suzuki Reno?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2008 Suzuki Reno motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Suzuki has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2008 Suzuki Reno vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your Reno’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important 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 Reno by considering your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2008 Suzuki Reno Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Suzuki Reno? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Reno’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 figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Suzuki Reno spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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.
