Need more info about 1997 Suzuki Swift oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just 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 1997 Swift’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Suzuki-recommended oil change intervals, your Swift may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Suzuki if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Suzuki Swift. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1997 Suzuki Swift Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Suzuki Swift motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Suzuki Swift engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Suzuki Swift oil at home? 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
