Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2018 Cadillac CT6? 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 CT6’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Cadillac CT6. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2018 Cadillac CT6 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Cadillac CT6? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Cadillac CT6 engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Cadillac CT6 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. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Cadillac CT6 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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 old cylinder walls.
  • Who does Cadillac CT6 oil changes? You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care for your Cadillac CT6 oil change, oil filter replacement, oil leak diagnostics, and more! Our expert technicians will even advise the right oil for your vehicle.
  • What does it mean if my Cadillac CT6 oil light comes on? The oil change light in your Cadillac CT6 could be triggered by an overdue oil change. However, if the oil pressure light is on, you may be dealing with low engine oil, a failing oil pump, a clogged oil filter, or a malfunctioning oil pressure sensor.
  • Does my CT6's oil filter need to be changed during my oil change? It's recommended that you replace your Cadillac CT6 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.
