Engine Oil Life System

Many of today's vehicles are equipped with an Oil Life Monitoring System (OLMS). This system analyzes your vehicle's speed and engine temperature and constantly  monitors operating conditions, which helps determine when it's time for an oil change.

The OLMS monitors a number of conditions, including engine revolutions, engine temperature, and miles driven to let you know exactly when to come in for an oil change. As soon as you notice your vehicle's OLS light illuminate, it's time for service.

 

Checking Your Oil Level

Even with an OLS, it's important to keep track of your oil level. Make sure to always check your vehicle's Owner's Manual for the proper procedure to check your oil level. Doing this will ensure you a more accurate dipstick reading by following those directions.

Oil Change FAQ

How often should you get an oil change?

On average vehicles are expected to get an oil change every 3,000 miles or every six months. However, this can change based on the way that you drive, the age of your vehicle, how often you drive, and your oil quality. For instance, if you drive a newer model, you might be able to wait longer to get an oil change.

Does regularly changing my oil filter help with the life of my engine?

Yes. An oil filter helps ensure your engine is lubricated with clean oil, which is important for optimal engine performance. Your engine's oil filter will eventually become clogged over a period of time since it traps a multitude of impure substances such as carbon dust and metal particles. Replacing the oil filter will prolong the engine's life and keep the oil clean.

Can I go over 100 miles without an oil change?

We always recommend you get an oil change as soon as possible. However, going over your oil change 100 miles should not hurt your engine. Just keep in mind that when this light appears, you should schedule an oil change as soon as possible.

Do I need to get my oil change at a Buick or GMC dealership?

No, you can get your oil changed at any mechanic shop that offers this service. However, when you get an oil change at an authorized Buick or GMC service center, the technicians likely know your car better than any other oil change place which means that there is a much lower chance of mistakes.
