How Often to Change 1984 Buick Century Oil

Need more info about 1984 Buick Century oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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.”

Buick recommends having your 1984 Buick Century’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Century may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Buick if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Buick Century. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Buick Century?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1984 Buick Century motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Buick has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 1984 Buick Century vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your Century's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Century by considering your driving habits, and mileage.

1984 Buick Century Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Buick Century engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Century’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Buick Century oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Buick Century 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. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
