When to Change 1999 Buick Park Avenue Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1999 Buick Park Avenue? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about 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 1999 Park Avenue’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Park Avenue may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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 drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Buick Park Avenue. 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 Park Avenue Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Buick Park Avenue. Buick has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 1999 Buick Park Avenue vehicles. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your Park Avenue’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s 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 Park Avenue by taking into account your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1999 Buick Park Avenue Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Buick Park Avenue? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Buick Park Avenue engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Buick Park Avenue oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
