When to Change 2008 Suzuki SX4 Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2008 Suzuki SX4? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.

Your 2008 SX4’s oil should be changed according to Suzuki’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Suzuki-recommended oil change intervals, your SX4 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Suzuki SX4. 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Suzuki SX4 Need?

During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your SX4’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your SX4 by taking into account your driving style, and mileage.

2008 Suzuki SX4 Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Suzuki SX4 engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Suzuki SX4 engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Suzuki SX4 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 changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Suzuki SX4 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. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
