When to Change 1995 Oldsmobile 88 Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Oldsmobile 88’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of 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.”

Oldsmobile recommends having your 1995 Oldsmobile 88’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Oldsmobile-recommended oil change intervals, your 88 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Oldsmobile recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Oldsmobile 88. 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.

1995 Oldsmobile 88 Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Oldsmobile 88 engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Oldsmobile 88 engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my 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. 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 Oldsmobile exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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 worn cylinder walls.
