When to Change 1985 Buick Regal Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1985 Buick Regal? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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.”

Your 1985 Regal’s oil should be changed according to Buick’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Regal in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Regal may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Buick if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Buick Regal. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1985 Buick Regal Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Buick Regal? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Regal’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? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil 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 Regal exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
