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. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.”
Your 1987 Skyhawk’s oil should be changed according to Buick’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Skyhawk in the above table. Outside of Buick-recommended oil change intervals, your Skyhawk may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, 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 go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Buick Skyhawk. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.
Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1987 Buick Skyhawk motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Buick has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 1987 Buick Skyhawk vehicles. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your Skyhawk’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Skyhawk by taking into account your driving habits, and mileage.
Wondering if we carry the right motor oil for your Buick? We carry the best because your Skyhawk deserves the best. Consult Buick's recommendations to select the right 1987 Skyhawk oil and talk with a teammate to learn more about our oil options: Quaker State® Advanced Durability™ conventional oil, Pennzoil® High Mileage Vehicle® motor oil, Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic motor oil with PurePlus™ Technology, and Shell Rotella® heavy-duty engine oil. There's a reason we carry these motor oil brands. They are champions. For instance, when tested on taxi fleets from coast to coast, Quaker State was shown to provide double the protection when compared to the industry standard.  Pennzoil is another option. 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 survive the toughest working conditions, and is uniquely fortified to offer increased wear protection, heightened performance in extreme temperatures, and improved oxidation resistance.
