How Often to Get 2014 Buick Encore Oil Changes

Need more info about 2014 Buick Encore oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Buick recommends having your 2014 Buick Encore’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Buick-recommended oil change intervals, your Encore may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Buick recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Buick Encore. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2014 Buick Encore?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Buick Encore. Buick has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2014 Buick Encore vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your Encore's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Encore by taking into account your driving style, and odometer.

2014 Buick Encore Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Buick Encore? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Buick Encore engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Buick Encore oil at home? 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Buick exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
