2020 GMC Acadia Oil Change Service

How Often to Change 2020 GMC Acadia 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 the ins and outs of motor oil, too. 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 changing your 2020 Acadia’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Acadia in the above table. Your Acadia may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock 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, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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 2020 GMC Acadia?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your GMC Acadia. GMC has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2020 GMC Acadia vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, 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, top-off essential 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, weather and road conditions,

2020 GMC Acadia Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my GMC Acadia? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Acadia’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change GMC Acadia oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
