Buick recommends having your 1983 Buick Estate Wagon’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Estate Wagon may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Buick Estate Wagon. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1983 Buick Estate Wagon Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Buick Estate Wagon motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Buick Estate Wagon engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Buick Estate Wagon oil at home? 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 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 Estate Wagon spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
