How Often to Change 2016 Buick Regal Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2016 Buick Regal? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of 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 2016 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 knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Buick if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Buick Regal Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2016 Buick Regal motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Buick has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2016 Regal. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your Regal’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Regal by taking into account your driving style, and odometer.

Types of Motor Oil for Buicks

Wondering if we carry the right motor oil for your Buick? Your Regal engine deserves the very best, which is why we only stock the best! Check your owner's manual and talk with a technician to select the right Buick Regal oil, whether it's Quaker State® Advanced Durability™ conventional oil, Pennzoil® High Mileage Vehicle® motor oil, Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic motor oil with PurePlus™ Technology, or Shell Rotella® heavy-duty engine oil. There are plenty of motor oils on the market today, so why do we prefer these brands? They are champions.

Unlike traditional synthetic motor oils, the Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic line of motor oils with PurePlus® Technology is formulated from pure natural gas, which helps lead to better performance. But don't forget about Shell Rotella for heavy-duty engines. It's specifically designed for diesel and gasoline engines that need to overcome the strenuous working conditions, and is fortified to deliver improved oxidation resistance, heightened performance in extreme temperatures, and increased wear protection. Always refer to Buick's recommendations before going with a new or different motor oil for your 2016 Buick Regal.

2016 Buick Regal Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Buick Regal engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Regal’s 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 buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
