When to Change 2009 Cadillac CTS Engine Oil

Need more info about 2009 Cadillac CTS oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 2009 CTS’s oil should be changed according to Cadillac’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Cadillac-recommended oil change intervals, your CTS may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Cadillac if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Cadillac CTS. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2009 Cadillac CTS Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Cadillac CTS? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Cadillac CTS engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Cadillac CTS 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
  • Where can I get Cadillac CTS oil changes? Firestone Complete Auto Care performs Cadillac CTS oil changes and more! Our technicians also replace oil filters, troubleshoot oil leaks, and advise on the right oil for your ride.
  • What does it mean if my Cadillac CTS oil light comes on? The oil change light in your Cadillac CTS 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.
  • Do I need to replace my CTS’s oil filter when changing my oil? It's recommended that you replace your Cadillac CTS 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.
