Not sure how or where to get your Buick LeSabre’s oil changed? 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. 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 1996 LeSabre’s oil should be changed according to Buick’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your LeSabre in the above table. No matter the mileage, your LeSabre may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Buick recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Buick LeSabre. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

Buick has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 1996 Buick LeSabre vehicles. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your LeSabre’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your LeSabre by taking into account your driving style, weather and road conditions,

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1996 Buick LeSabre

  • What can low oil do to my Buick LeSabre engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Buick LeSabre engine failure. 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? 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform 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. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
