How Often to Change 1991 Suzuki Sidekick Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Suzuki Sidekick’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about 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.”

Suzuki recommends having your 1991 Suzuki Sidekick’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Sidekick may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Suzuki recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Suzuki Sidekick. 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.

1991 Suzuki Sidekick Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Suzuki Sidekick? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Suzuki Sidekick 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? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 Sidekick 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
