How Often to Get 2017 Cadillac XTS Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2017 Cadillac XTS? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about 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.”

Cadillac recommends changing your 2017 XTS’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your XTS in the above table. Your XTS may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Cadillac recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Cadillac XTS. 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.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Cadillac XTS?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Cadillac XTS. Cadillac has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2017 Cadillac XTS vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your XTS’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your XTS by considering your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2017 Cadillac XTS Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Cadillac XTS? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Cadillac XTS engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Cadillac oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Cadillac XTS spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
