2014 Buick LaCrosse Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Buick LaCrosse? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess 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 LaCrosse oil at home? 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 changed professionally can not only reduce 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. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
