How Often to Change 1994 Suzuki Samurai Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1994 Suzuki Samurai? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of 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.”

Your 1994 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 knocking sounds 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, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1994 Suzuki Samurai motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Suzuki has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 1994 Samurai. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your Samurai’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential 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 preferences, and odometer.

1994 Suzuki Samurai Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Suzuki Samurai motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Suzuki Samurai engine failure. 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. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. 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 Samurai spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
