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 1998 X-90’s oil should be changed according to Suzuki’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your X-90 in the above table. Outside of Suzuki-recommended oil change intervals, your X-90 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of 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 go long distances at low speeds. 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 Type of Oil Does My Suzuki X-90 Need?

During your oil change service, a technician will change your X-90's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving preferences, and mileage.

1998 Suzuki X-90 Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Suzuki X-90 engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your X-90’s engine to fail. 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces 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? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
