After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Buick recommends changing your 2001 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 engine knocking, 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, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

2001 Buick Regal Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Buick Regal? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Buick Regal 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 your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. 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? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. 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, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
