Buick recommends changing your 2012 Verano’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Verano in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Verano may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess 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 terrain, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Buick Verano. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Buick Verano Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Buick Verano. Buick has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2012 Buick Verano vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your Verano's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s 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 style, and odometer.

2012 Buick Verano Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Buick Verano? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Buick Verano engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Buick Verano oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Buick exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
