Cadillac recommends having your 1988 Cadillac Cimarron’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Cadillac-recommended oil change intervals, your Cimarron may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Cadillac recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Cadillac Cimarron. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

1988 Cadillac Cimarron Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Cadillac Cimarron motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Cimarron’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Cadillac Cimarron oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Cadillac exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
  • Where can I get Cadillac Cimarron oil changes? Firestone Complete Auto Care performs Cadillac Cimarron oil changes and more! Our technicians also replace oil filters, troubleshoot oil leaks, and advise on the right oil for your ride.
  • What can cause the oil light on my Cadillac Cimarron to illuminate? If you’re overdue for an oil change, it might trigger your Cadillac Cimarron oil change reminder light. If the oil pressure light is illuminated, it could be due to low engine oil, a failing oil pump, a malfunctioning oil pressure sensor, or a clogged oil filter.
  • Does my Cimarron's oil filter need to be changed during my oil change? Every time you change the oil in your Cadillac Cimarron, you should also replace the oil filter. Otherwise, you risk contaminating your brand-new oil with the dirt and debris built up in your old filter.
