How Often to Change 1997 Suzuki X-90 Oil

Need more info about 1997 Suzuki X-90 oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Suzuki recommends having your 1997 Suzuki X-90’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your X-90 may need its oil changed ASAP 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, drive in dusty areas, 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 X-90. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Suzuki X-90?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1997 Suzuki X-90 motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Suzuki has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 1997 X-90. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your X-90's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your X-90 by taking into account your driving preferences, and mileage.

1997 Suzuki X-90 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Suzuki X-90? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Suzuki X-90 engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Suzuki X-90 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Suzuki X-90 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
