When to Change 1990 Buick LeSabre Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Buick LeSabre’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about 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 1990 Buick LeSabre’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. 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 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, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Buick LeSabre Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1990 Buick LeSabre motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Buick has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 1990 LeSabre. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your LeSabre’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your LeSabre by considering your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1990 Buick LeSabre

  • Should I check my Buick LeSabre motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your LeSabre’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Buick LeSabre oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. 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 LeSabre spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
