A 1992 Buick Regal 3800 needs approximately 4.5 quarts of oil. The oil can be purchased at any auto parts store such as NAPA.

As soon as the 2003 Buick Regal change oil light comes on, it is important to do so immediately. Not changing your oil can damage the motor in your car.

The Oilpressure switch is located near the oil filter, just upper side with the electric wires plug in

It should be located near the oil filter witch is under the power stearing pump. On the passenger side at the back of the engine. If the pressure switch is broken, you sould see your oil light on and have a trouble code on your computer, if you have a pressure indicator in the dash, it would indicate way to high pressure.

You can prime the oil pump on an 85 Buick Regal by removing the distributor and inserting a priming rod onto the oil pump shaft. It can then be turned by hand or with a drill to distribute oil throughout the engine.

The 2001 Buick Regal needs oil added if the level of oil on the dipstick is at or below the Add mark. Checking the oil at every stop for fuel is good practice to catch major leaks early.

Okay, it took me about 10 minutes but I found it. I have a 1994 Buick Regal & my oil filter is on the back passenger side of the engine, about 3/4 of the way down, below the power steering box. I hope that helps! On my 1991 Buick Regal the oil filter is located under the power steering pump which you access through the passenger wheel well to remove/add the filter.

Transmission fluid is Dexron 3. The brand oil is your choice. The weight of the oil should be listed on the dipstick, fill cap, or owners manual. Probably 10W30

Any major brand 10w30 high detergent oil.

The 2002 Buick regal that I have has a reset switch behind the fuse panel on the right side of the dash board. If you open the panel there is a switch that is red and marked reset. turn the key on hold the switch for 10 seconds and the oil life should be reset. It also rests the tire low indicator.

The oil pressure sending unit on a 1997 Buick LeSabre is located on the bottom side of the engine, near the oil filter. It monitors oil pressure to ensure that the pump is working properly.

4.5 Quarts, with replacing the oil filter. Start, check, and top off as needed.
