2007 GMC Acadia Oil Change

When to Change 2007 GMC Acadia Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your GMC Acadia’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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 changing your 2007 Acadia’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Acadia in the above table. Outside of GMC-recommended oil change intervals, your Acadia may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess 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 areas, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your GMC Acadia. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2007 GMC Acadia?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2007 GMC Acadia motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your Acadia’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Acadia by considering your driving preferences, and mileage.

2007 GMC Acadia Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my GMC Acadia engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Acadia’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my GMC Acadia 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 with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my GMC Acadia 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. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
