How Often to Change 1998 Oldsmobile Achieva Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Oldsmobile Achieva’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Oldsmobile recommends changing your 1998 Achieva’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Achieva 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, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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 areas, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1998 Oldsmobile Achieva

  • Should I check my Oldsmobile Achieva motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Oldsmobile Achieva engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Oldsmobile Achieva oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. 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 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
