How Often to Change 1990 Buick Reatta Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Buick Reatta’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Buick recommends changing your 1990 Reatta’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Reatta in the above table. Outside of Buick-recommended oil change intervals, your Reatta may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock 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, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Buick Reatta. 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.

1990 Buick Reatta Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Buick Reatta? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Reatta’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • 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 figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce 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? 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 the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
