1985 Cadillac DeVille Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Cadillac DeVille? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine.

Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Cadillac DeVille spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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.
