If you own a Buick, then you obviously value quality. However, your Buick, as fantastic as it is, will need regular maintenance to maintain its quality performance. Take a look below for information on four services your Buick needs in order to continually run smoothly.
- Oil Change You’ll need to take your new or pre-owned Buick into the dealership for a routine oil change every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. Clean oil is necessary to keep the pistons in your engine moving up and down smoothly. Over time, the amount of oil in your Buick will decrease or become dirty. Without sufficient lubrication, the pistons will grind against their engine compartment and create friction, which could cause your engine to overheat.
- Tire Rotation Your Buick has to work harder to roll forward as your tires’ tread wears down. As you drive, you wear down the tread on one side of your tire. By rotating your tires, you ensure that all parts of the tires wear down evenly, giving you the most value out of your vehicle.
- Engine Diagnostic Test It is a good idea to undergo an engine diagnostic test once a year. This service is similar to a physical and it can help you find potential problems that are cheaper during their infancy. These tests are generally inexpensive, so play it safe and stay on top of maintenance.
- Transmission Fluid Flush Once you reach 80,000 to 100,000 miles in your Buick, you should have your transmission fluid flushed. Just as with your oil, your transmission fluid becomes contaminated with dirt and debris over time. You don’t want this dirty fluid circulating your engine, as it can cause problems.
