When to Change 2021 Buick Encore Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Buick Encore’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Buick recommends changing your 2021 Encore’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Encore may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. 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.

2021 Buick Encore Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Buick Encore motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Buick Encore engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil 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 buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, 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. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
