Oldsmobile recommends changing your 1997 88’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 88 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 engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess 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 terrain, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Oldsmobile 88. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.
Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1997 Oldsmobile 88 motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care.
