When to Change 1989 Suzuki Swift Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1989 Suzuki Swift? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Suzuki recommends having your 1989 Suzuki Swift’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Swift may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Suzuki if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Suzuki Swift. 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.

1989 Suzuki Swift Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Suzuki Swift? 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 cause your Swift’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Suzuki Swift oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. 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 Swift spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
