Buick recommends having your 2013 Buick Regal’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table.

In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2013 Buick Regal

  • What can low oil do to my Buick Regal engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much 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 with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Buick exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
