How Often to Change 2015 GMC Acadia Oil

Not sure how or where to get your GMC Acadia’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.”

GMC recommends having your 2015 GMC Acadia’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Acadia may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than GMC recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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 Type of Oil Does My GMC Acadia Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2015 GMC Acadia motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. GMC has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2015 Acadia. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your Acadia's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important 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 Acadia by considering your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2015 GMC Acadia Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my GMC Acadia engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your GMC Acadia engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my GMC Acadia spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. 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 old cylinder walls.
