2010 GMC Acadia Oil Change

How Often to Get 2010 GMC Acadia Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your GMC Acadia’s oil changed? 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. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 2010 Acadia’s oil should be changed according to GMC’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Acadia may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your GMC Acadia. 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’s the Right Type of Oil for 2010 GMC Acadia?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2010 GMC Acadia motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. GMC has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2010 Acadia. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, 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 drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Acadia by taking into account your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2010 GMC Acadia

  • Should I check my GMC Acadia motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess 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? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my GMC exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
