Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.”

Your 1994 Century’s oil should be changed according to Buick’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table.

More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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.

1994 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, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Buick Century engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Buick oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Buick exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
