When to Change 1994 Buick Regal Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1994 Buick Regal? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about 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 1994 Regal’s oil should be changed according to Buick’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Regal may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change 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, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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.

1994 Buick Regal Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Buick Regal engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, 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.
  • Can I change my Buick oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Buick Regal spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
