How Often to Get 2009 Buick Lucerne Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2009 Buick Lucerne? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. 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 2009 Lucerne’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Lucerne in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Lucerne may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine 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 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. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Buick Lucerne. 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 2009 Buick Lucerne?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Buick Lucerne. Buick has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 2009 Lucerne. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your Lucerne’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Lucerne by considering your driving preferences, and odometer.

2009 Buick Lucerne Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Buick Lucerne engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Buick Lucerne engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Buick Lucerne 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Buick Lucerne spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
