When to Change 2015 Cadillac XTS Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2015 Cadillac XTS? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. 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 2015 XTS’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your XTS in the above table. No matter the mileage, your XTS may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine 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 might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Cadillac if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Cadillac XTS. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2015 Cadillac XTS Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Cadillac XTS engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Cadillac XTS engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Cadillac XTS oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 XTS spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
