How Often to Get 2008 Buick Lucerne Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Buick Lucerne’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.

Your 2008 Lucerne’s oil should be changed according to Buick’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Buick-recommended oil change intervals, your Lucerne may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess 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, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Buick Lucerne. 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.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2008 Buick Lucerne?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2008 Buick Lucerne motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Buick has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2008 Lucerne.

During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Lucerne’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Lucerne by taking into account your driving habits, and mileage.

2008 Buick Lucerne Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Buick Lucerne? 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 excess heat, and eventually lead to Buick Lucerne engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Buick Lucerne oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 Lucerne exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
