How Often to Change 1983 Buick Regal Oil

Need more info about 1983 Buick Regal oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 1983 Regal’s oil should be changed according to Buick’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Buick-recommended oil change intervals, your Regal may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Buick if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Buick Regal. 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Buick Regal Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1983 Buick Regal motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care.

You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Regal by taking into account your driving habits, and mileage.

1983 Buick Regal Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Buick Regal motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Buick Regal engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Buick Regal 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 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. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
