Your 1998 Eldorado’s oil should be changed according to Cadillac’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Eldorado in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Eldorado may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, 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, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Cadillac Eldorado. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1998 Cadillac Eldorado Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Cadillac Eldorado? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Cadillac Eldorado engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • 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. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform 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. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
  • Who can change the oil on my Cadillac Eldorado? Firestone Complete Auto Care is here to care for your vehicle with our Cadillac Eldorado oil changes and more. Our expert technicians will also suggest the best oil for your vehicle, address oil leaks, and swap out your oil filter.
  • Why is the oil light on in my Cadillac Eldorado? 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.
  • Do I need to change my Eldorado's oil filter when I get an oil change? Every time you change the oil in your Cadillac Eldorado, 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.
