1997 Oldsmobile Aurora Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Oldsmobile Aurora motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Oldsmobile Aurora engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Oldsmobile Aurora 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 professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Oldsmobile Aurora exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
