When to Change 2005 Buick Century Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Buick Century’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of 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.”

Buick recommends having your 2005 Buick Century’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Century may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, 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, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Buick Century. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Buick Century Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Buick Century. Buick has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2005 Century. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your Century's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car 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 preferences, local climate,

2005 Buick Century Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Buick Century motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Buick Century engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Buick oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle 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. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
  • Who can change the oil on my Buick Century? You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care for your Buick Century oil change, oil filter replacement, oil leak diagnostics, and more! Our expert technicians will even advise the right oil for your vehicle.
  • What does it mean if my Buick Century oil light comes on? Your Buick Century oil change reminder light may come on if you're overdue for an oil change. The oil pressure light will typically come on if the oil level in the engine is too low, the oil pump is failing, you have a clogged oil filter, or there's a faulty oil pressure sensor.
  • Do I need to change my Century's oil filter when I get an oil change? It’s highly advised you replace the oil filter in your Buick Century every time you change the oil. After all, what’s the point of changing our oil if you’re just going to send fresh, clean engine oil through an already dirty filter?
