How Often to Get 1984 Buick Riviera Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Buick Riviera’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.

Your 1984 Riviera’s oil should be changed according to Buick’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Riviera 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 may also need an oil change more frequently than Buick recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Buick Riviera. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1984 Buick Riviera Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Buick Riviera motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Buick Riviera engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Buick Riviera oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 with your vehicle 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
