How Often to Change 1993 Buick Riviera Oil

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. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Buick recommends having your 1993 Buick Riviera’s motor oil changed at regular 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 engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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 areas, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. 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.

1993 Buick Riviera Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Buick Riviera motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Riviera’s 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 your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Buick Riviera exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
