Not sure how or where to get your Buick Enclave’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just 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 2013 Enclave’s oil should be changed according to Buick’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Enclave may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust.

Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Buick Enclave. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2013 Buick Enclave Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Buick Enclave? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Buick Enclave engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Buick oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Buick exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
