1999 Oldsmobile Alero Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Oldsmobile Alero engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Oldsmobile Alero 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 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 professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Oldsmobile Alero spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
