Engine oil and filter changes. Changing the engine oil and filter is required at every service point. Use only a Saab approved long-life oil filter and engine oils meeting the SAE viscosity ratings and API service classifications stated in the “Technical data” section of this Owner’s Manual. The use of extra additives in the oil is not necessary and is not recommended, and may be harmful to turbochargers.More frequent oil changes are recommended if your vehicle is operated under any of the following conditions:

  • Most trips are less than 5-10 miles (8-16 km). This is particularly important when outside temperatures are below freezing.
  • Most trips include extensive idling (frequent stop-and-go traffic).
  • Most trips are through dusty areas (such as construction zones).
  • If the vehicle is used for delivery service, police, taxi or other commercial applications.

If your driving habits match this description, have the engine oil and filter changed inbetween normal services at 5,000 mile (8,000 km) intervals. These conditions cause the engine oil to break down faster. The Warranties and Service Record Booklet has provisions to record extra oil changes.
