The maintenance intervals in Saab manuals are provided with the assumption that you will be carrying out the work yourself. If you wish to keep your Saab in peak condition at all times, you may wish to perform some of these procedures more often. If the vehicle is driven in dusty areas, used to tow a trailer, or driven frequently at slow speeds (idling in traffic) or on short journeys, more frequent maintenance intervals are recommended.
The engine oil level is checked with a dipstick that extends through the dipstick/oil filler tube on the rear of the cylinder block and into the sump at the bottom of the engine. The oil level should be checked with the vehicle standing on level ground with the engine still warm, between 2 and 5 minutes after the engine has been switched off.
Always maintain the level between the two dipstick marks. If the level is allowed to fall below the lower mark, oil starvation may result, which could lead to severe engine damage.
Regardless of whether you are changing the oil yourself on your car, or whether it is done by professionals, it’s important to regularly check and change the engine oil. Regardless of whether you use synthetic, synthetic blend or conventional oil, don’t skimp when it’s time for an oil change. Change the oil and filter both, right then!Changing your oil is an essential part of ongoing car maintenance to keep your Saabrunning safely.
