How Often to Get 1995 Suzuki Samurai Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1995 Suzuki Samurai? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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.”

Suzuki recommends changing your 1995 Samurai’s oil at regular 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 see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Suzuki recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Samurai by considering your driving habits, and odometer.

1995 Suzuki Samurai Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Suzuki Samurai motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these 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.
  • How hard is it to change Suzuki Samurai oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. 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 with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Suzuki Samurai exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
