How Often to Get 2018 Cadillac ATS Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2018 Cadillac ATS? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.”

Cadillac recommends changing your 2018 ATS’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your ATS may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Cadillac recommends if you 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 Cadillac ATS. 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Cadillac ATS Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Cadillac ATS. Cadillac has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2018 ATS. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your ATS's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s 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.

2018 Cadillac ATS Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Cadillac ATS? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Cadillac ATS engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Cadillac ATS 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Cadillac exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
  • Who offers Cadillac ATS oil changes? Firestone Complete Auto Care performs Cadillac ATS oil changes and more! Our technicians also replace oil filters, troubleshoot oil leaks, and advise on the right oil for your ride.
  • Why is the oil light on in my Cadillac ATS? Your Cadillac ATS oil change reminder light may come on if you're overdue for an oil change. The oil pressure light will typically come on if the oil level in the engine is too low, the oil pump is failing, you have a clogged oil filter, or there's a faulty oil pressure sensor.
  • Do I need to replace my ATS’s oil filter when changing my oil? It's recommended that you replace your Cadillac ATS oil filter with every oil change. Otherwise, you send fresh, clean motor oil through a dirty filter. That's like putting on muddy socks after a shower.
