2011 Suzuki SX4 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Suzuki SX4? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Suzuki SX4 engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Suzuki oil on my own? 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 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 SX4 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
