1992 Oldsmobile 88 Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Oldsmobile 88 engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Oldsmobile 88 engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Oldsmobile 88 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Oldsmobile exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
