Need more info about 1988 Buick Century oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”
Your 1988 Century’s oil should be changed according to Buick’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Buick-recommended oil change intervals, your Century may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Buick if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Buick Century. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.
Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1988 Buick Century motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Buick has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 1988 Buick Century vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your Century’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Century by taking into account your driving style, weather and road conditions,
