How Often to Change 1989 Buick Regal Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1989 Buick Regal? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 1989 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, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, 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. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Buick Regal?

Buick has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 1989 Regal.

In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your Regal’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving habits, weather and road conditions,

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1989 Buick Regal

  • 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 excess heat, and cause your Regal’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my 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? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
