How Often to Change 1993 Oldsmobile 88 Oil

Need more info about 1993 Oldsmobile 88 oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 1993 88’s oil should be changed according to Oldsmobile’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your 88 may need its oil changed ASAP 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 might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Oldsmobile if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Oldsmobile 88. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 1993 Oldsmobile 88?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Oldsmobile 88. Oldsmobile has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 1993 88. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your 88’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1993 Oldsmobile 88

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Oldsmobile 88? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Oldsmobile 88 engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Oldsmobile oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Oldsmobile 88 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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 worn cylinder walls.
