Your 1985 Somerset Regal’s oil should be changed according to Buick’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table.

1985 Buick Somerset Regal Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Buick Somerset Regal motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Buick Somerset Regal engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Buick oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Buick Somerset Regal 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 the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
