When to Change 1994 Oldsmobile Achieva Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Oldsmobile Achieva’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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.”

Oldsmobile recommends changing your 1994 Achieva’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Oldsmobile-recommended oil change intervals, your Achieva may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds 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, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Oldsmobile Achieva. 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.

1994 Oldsmobile Achieva Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Oldsmobile Achieva? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Achieva’s engine to fail. 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 buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Oldsmobile Achieva 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.
