Buick recommends changing your 1987 Regal’s oil at regular 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 notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Buick if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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.

1987 Buick Regal Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Buick Regal? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Buick Regal engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Buick Regal spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
