Oldsmobile recommends changing your 1994 98’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 98 in the above table. Your 98 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of 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 long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Oldsmobile 98. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1994 Oldsmobile 98 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Oldsmobile 98 motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Oldsmobile 98 engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Oldsmobile 98 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 98 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. 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, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
