Reed Buick GMCHow Do I Know it’s Time to Change My Oil?

Changing your oil at regular mileage intervals or once a year is essential to the longevity of your vehicle. There are a few ways to find out if it’s time to change your oil. If your Oil Life System (OLS) indicator light turns on, you need to change your oil. For more low-tech options, you can consult your owner’s manual for oil change mileage intervals, contact our service center to inquire, or check your oil levels manually. To check your oil level manually, ensure that your engine is turned off, the engine has cooled for two hours, and that the vehicle is on a level surface. 

Buick Oil Life Systems

In recently-built Buick vehicles, there is an OLS which lights up when the system has determined that your vehicle is in need of an oil and filter change. This system was designed to take the guesswork and calendar-checking out of figuring out when your last oil change was.
