2005 Buick Park Avenue Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Buick Park Avenue? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Buick Park Avenue engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Buick oil on my own? 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. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Buick exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
