How Often to Get 2019 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. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 2019 Acadia’s oil should be changed according to GMC’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of GMC-recommended oil change intervals, your Acadia may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by GMC if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your GMC Acadia. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2019 GMC Acadia?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2019 GMC Acadia motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your Acadia’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Acadia by taking into account your driving habits, and mileage.

2019 GMC Acadia Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my GMC Acadia motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to GMC Acadia engine failure. 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? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil 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? 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 damaged cylinder walls.
