Buick recommends changing your 1987 Electra’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Buick-recommended oil change intervals, your Electra may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess 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, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Buick Electra. 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.
