1992 Oldsmobile 98 Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Oldsmobile 98 motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Oldsmobile 98 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 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 98 exhaust smoke grayish 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, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
