How Often to Change 1991 Buick Skylark Oil

Need more info about 1991 Buick Skylark oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about 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 1991 Buick Skylark’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Buick-recommended oil change intervals, your Skylark may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds 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, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Buick Skylark. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Buick Skylark?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Buick Skylark. Buick has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 1991 Buick Skylark vehicles. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your Skylark’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important 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 mileage.

1991 Buick Skylark Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Buick Skylark? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Skylark’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Buick Skylark 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 Skylark exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
