How Often to Change 2017 Buick LaCrosse Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2017 Buick LaCrosse? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of 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 having your 2017 Buick LaCrosse’s motor oil changed at regular 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 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, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Buick LaCrosse. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

2017 Buick LaCrosse Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Buick LaCrosse motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Buick LaCrosse engine to fail. 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 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 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, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
