Suzuki recommends changing your 1992 Samurai’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Samurai may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust.

Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Suzuki Samurai. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

1992 Suzuki Samurai Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Suzuki Samurai motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Suzuki Samurai engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Suzuki Samurai 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 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. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
