Suzuki recommends changing your 2010 SX4’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above.

2010 Suzuki SX4 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Suzuki SX4 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your SX4’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 SX4 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Suzuki exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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.
