When to Change 1992 Buick Riviera Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Buick Riviera’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at 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.

Your 1992 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. Outside of Buick-recommended oil change intervals, your Riviera may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Buick recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Buick Riviera. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1992 Buick Riviera Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Buick Riviera engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, 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.
  • Can I change my Buick Riviera oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d 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 Riviera spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
