Need more info about 1989 Suzuki Samurai oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about 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 1989 Samurai’s oil should be changed according to Suzuki’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Samurai may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds 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 terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Suzuki Samurai. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.
Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1989 Suzuki Samurai motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Suzuki has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 1989 Samurai. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Samurai’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Samurai by taking into account your driving preferences, local climate,
