When to Change 1991 Suzuki Samurai Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1991 Suzuki Samurai? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about 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 1991 Samurai’s oil should be changed according to Suzuki’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Suzuki-recommended oil change intervals, your Samurai 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 car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Suzuki if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. 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.

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

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1991 Suzuki Samurai motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Suzuki has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 1991 Suzuki Samurai vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Samurai’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Samurai by considering your driving style, and mileage.

1991 Suzuki Samurai Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Suzuki Samurai motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Suzuki Samurai engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Suzuki oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Suzuki Samurai spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
