Not sure how or where to get your Buick Skyhawk’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”
Buick recommends having your 1986 Buick Skyhawk’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Skyhawk may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of 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, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Buick Skyhawk. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.
Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Buick Skyhawk. Buick has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 1986 Buick Skyhawk vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your Skyhawk’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving habits, and odometer.
