How I often should I change the oil in my 2019 Buick Encore?

Oil pours from a container into a waiting engine.

Keeping your vehicle filled at the proper level with fresh oil is essential to maintain a healthy machine. However, advancing technology and diversity among modern vehicles make it hard to know exactly when one has to get that oil changed. When should the oil be changed in a 2019 Buick Encore?

2019 Buick Encore Recommended Oil Change Intervals

Black 2019 Buick Encore drives along a highway on a bright sunny day.

According to the 2019 Buick Encore Owner’s Manual, “when the CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON DIC message displays, have the engine oil and filter changed within the next 600 miles.” That’s right- with the 2019 Buick Encore, simply wait and listen for the vehicle itself to tell you when its oil needs to be changed.

When driven under the best conditions, the 2019 Buick Encore may not indicate the need for service for up to an entire year.

The engine oil and filter in the 2019 Buick Encore must be changed at least once per year. When the oil is changed, the oil life system should be reset. To ensure this is done properly, we recommend taking your 2019 Encore in to a trained dealer technician, such as our service team here at Carl Black Orlando! This will guarantee the job is done the way it’s meant to be.

What if my oil life system is accidentally reset?

If the oil life system is accidentally reset, it’s recommended to service the vehicle within 3,000 miles of the last change.

How often should I check the oil level in the 2019 Buick Encore?

It’s recommended that drivers of the 2019 Encore check their oil every 400 miles. This is especially true before taking a long trip. Under the hood, look for the engine oil dipstick. The handle is shaped in a loop.

For ideal oil-level-checking conditions, park the vehicle on level ground. If possible, wait two hours after the engine has been turned off to check. At minimum, turn off and wait 15 minutes if the engine is warm, and 30 minutes if the engine is not warm.
