How Often to Get 2004 Buick Regal Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Buick Regal’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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 2004 Regal’s oil at regular 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 engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Buick recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Buick Regal. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2004 Buick Regal motor oil: either synthetic or conventional.

You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2004 Buick Regal Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Buick Regal motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much 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 your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Buick exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
