When to Change 1993 Suzuki Sidekick Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1993 Suzuki Sidekick? Look no further than 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.”

Suzuki recommends changing your 1993 Sidekick’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Sidekick in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Sidekick may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds 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, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Suzuki Sidekick. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Suzuki Sidekick Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1993 Suzuki Sidekick motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Suzuki has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 1993 Sidekick. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your Sidekick’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Sidekick by taking into account your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1993 Suzuki Sidekick Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Suzuki Sidekick? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Sidekick’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Suzuki Sidekick oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Suzuki exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
