Cadillac recommends changing your 1997 Eldorado’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Eldorado may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust.

Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Cadillac Eldorado. 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1997 Cadillac Eldorado

  • What can low oil do to my Cadillac Eldorado engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Cadillac Eldorado engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Cadillac Eldorado 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Cadillac Eldorado exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
  • Who can change the oil on my Cadillac Eldorado? Firestone Complete Auto Care performs Cadillac Eldorado oil changes and more! Our technicians also replace oil filters, troubleshoot oil leaks, and advise on the right oil for your ride.
  • Why is my Cadillac Eldorado oil light illuminated? Your Cadillac Eldorado oil change reminder light may come on if you're overdue for an oil change. The oil pressure light will typically come on if the oil level in the engine is too low, the oil pump is failing, you have a clogged oil filter, or there's a faulty oil pressure sensor.
  • Should the oil filter be replaced when getting an oil change for my Cadillac Eldorado? You should replace your Cadillac Eldorado during each oil change. The filter captures debris and contaminants to help keep your oil clean, which means the filter gets dirty. If you skip replacing the filter, you’ll contaminate your new oil with the dirty filter.
