When to Change 2018 Buick Regal Sportback Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Buick Regal Sportback’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Buick recommends changing your 2018 Regal Sportback’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Buick-recommended oil change intervals, your Regal Sportback may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Buick recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Buick Regal Sportback. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Buick Regal Sportback Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Buick Regal Sportback. Buick has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2018 Buick Regal Sportback vehicles. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your Regal Sportback's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Regal Sportback by considering your driving style, and odometer.

2018 Buick Regal Sportback Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Buick Regal Sportback? 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 eventually lead to Buick Regal Sportback engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Buick Regal Sportback 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Buick exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
