Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2017 GMC Acadia Limited? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about 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.”

GMC recommends having your 2017 GMC Acadia Limited’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of GMC-recommended oil change intervals, your Acadia Limited may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by GMC if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your GMC Acadia Limited. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2017 GMC Acadia Limited Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my GMC Acadia Limited motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your GMC Acadia Limited engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my GMC oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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 GMC Acadia Limited exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of 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, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
