When to Change 2016 Cadillac SRX Engine Oil

Need more info about 2016 Cadillac SRX oil changes? Get the advice you need at 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 2016 SRX’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Cadillac-recommended oil change intervals, your SRX 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 may also need an oil change more frequently than Cadillac recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Cadillac SRX. 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.

2016 Cadillac SRX Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Cadillac SRX motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Cadillac SRX engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Cadillac SRX oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. 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 Cadillac exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
