    I change it at the Mfg recommendation at 4000 miles. I have a 1999 olds intregue with a 3800 engine and 135000 miles on it and it doesn't take as much oil as the buick. Also when I first got the Buick it had 24000 miles on it and I didn't have to add oil between changes then

It should be minimal between oil changes. Even at 5,000 mile intervals you shouldnt see hardly any consumption. My 04 Avalanche has 88,000 and I just changed mine at 5K and didnt see any consumption. Look at the filter and drain plug on the pan and see if either of them are loose. Inspect around valve covers for leaks as well.

Unfortunately, the dealership will be a waste of time They will tell you that is normal and not to worry about it.

No it's not have your engine check for oil leaks, also have then do a wet and dry cylinder compression test this will let you know if you are burning oil, also have them check the spark plug's.Hope this was helpful.

No problem, just question on oil change,


I would recommend that you change your oil every 3,000 mile or 3 months which ever come first. This just help you keep a cleaner engine and keeps oil at Peak performance and provide excellent protection against sludge which developes with lack of oil change. Once a year seems too long for an oil change. However between oil changes you can add oil if needed. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA
