Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2009 Cadillac DTS? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2009 DTS’s oil should be changed according to Cadillac’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your DTS may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Cadillac DTS. 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.
