When to Change Your Oil
By following your car, truck, or SUV’s warning lights, you will know when it is time to properly service your vehicle. Consult your vehicle’s owners manual in order to evaluate the best time and process for checking vehicle oil levels. Typically, your vehicle needs an oil change at least once a year, and our technicians will change oil, filter, and reset your warning light.
Our technicians will also assess your vehicle’s tire wear, fluid levels, and other essential vehicle functions. With any questions regarding your Cadillac’s oil service, feel free to send our service team a message!
Oil Change Benefits
By staying up to date on oil changes and routine maintenance, you can ensure peace of mind that your vehicle will run smoothly during its lifespan. Though every vehicle is different, the typical oil span guideline is between 3,500-7,500. If you typically drive under harsh conditions or frequently off-road, we recommend visiting earlier. Main benefits of staying up to date with oil changes include:
Ensuring engine parts stay lubricated
Ensuring your engine runs at maximum power
Ensuring your engine is free of pollutants
Ensuring your engine does not overheat
It is never a good idea to extend your oil change intervals. Engine oil wears out overtime, leaving your engine with insufficient lubrication and protection. Trust that our certified Cadillac technicians will care for your vehicle and perform the best service possible!

Oil Change Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know when my Cadillac needs an oil change?
As previously mentioned, you should get your Cadillac’s oil changed every 3,500-7,500 miles. Along with that important mile marker, our Cadillac vehicles are equipped with an Oil Life System (OLS). This system helps determine when it’s time for an oil change. So when you notice your vehicle’s OLS light illuminating, it’s time to bring it to our Cadillac service center.
Can I change my Cadillacs oil myself?
If you have the correct equipment, correct oil, oil filter and the knowledge, you could absolutely do it yourself. However, if you’ve never done it before or want to make sure it’s done perfectly, trust the service technicians at our certified Cadillac service center. With special offers and Cadillac service coupons, you get to save money and time in your busy schedule.
What kind of oil does my Cadillac take?
The Cadillac CTS and CTS-V cars require SAE 5W-30 engine oil. Cadillac recommends ACDelco Conventional or ACDelco Full Synthetic. Dexos-certified oils that bear the Dexos mark which is an oil-rating standard used by many automakers.
Will less frequent oil changes harm the engine of my Cadillac?
Yes. Over time, infrequent oil changes cause a buildup of carbon and sludgy deposits on bearings, valve train components, and other moving parts. Initially, you won’t see any damage but trust us—it is there. A Cadillac oil change is extremely important for the longevity of your vehicle.
