1991 Buick Reatta Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Buick Reatta engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Buick Reatta engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Buick Reatta oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 damaged cylinder walls.
