How Often to Get 2013 Buick LaCrosse Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Buick LaCrosse’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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 LaCrosse’s oil should be changed according to Buick’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your LaCrosse may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Buick if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, 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 LaCrosse. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2013 Buick LaCrosse motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Buick has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2013 LaCrosse. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your LaCrosse's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your LaCrosse by considering your driving habits, and odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2013 Buick LaCrosse

  • What can low oil do to my Buick LaCrosse engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Buick LaCrosse engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it 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 figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Buick LaCrosse spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
