How Often to Change 1986 Buick LeSabre Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Buick LeSabre’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 1986 LeSabre’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your LeSabre may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, 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, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Buick LeSabre. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1986 Buick LeSabre Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Buick LeSabre? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Buick LeSabre engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Buick LeSabre oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. 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 LeSabre exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. 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.
