Buick recommends having your 2005 Buick Rainier’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Rainier may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Buick Rainier. 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2005 Buick Rainier

  • Should I check my Buick Rainier motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Rainier’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Buick oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. 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 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, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
