How Often to Change 1998 Buick LeSabre Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1998 Buick LeSabre? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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 changing your 1998 LeSabre’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Buick-recommended oil change intervals, your LeSabre may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Buick recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. 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’s the Right Type of Oil for 1998 Buick LeSabre?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1998 Buick LeSabre motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Buick has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 1998 LeSabre. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your LeSabre's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1998 Buick LeSabre Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Buick LeSabre engine? Engine oil lubricates 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 should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Buick LeSabre oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Buick exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
