How Often to Get 2017 Buick Encore Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2017 Buick Encore? 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 changing your 2017 Encore’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Encore 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 notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Buick if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

2017 Buick Encore Oil Change Questions

  • 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 components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Encore’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • 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 buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Buick Encore exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
