1998 Oldsmobile Aurora Oil Change

How Often to Change 1998 Oldsmobile Aurora Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Oldsmobile Aurora’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 1998 Aurora’s oil should be changed according to Oldsmobile’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Aurora in the above table. Outside of Oldsmobile-recommended oil change intervals, your Aurora may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Oldsmobile if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Oldsmobile Aurora. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Oldsmobile Aurora Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1998 Oldsmobile Aurora motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Oldsmobile has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1998 Aurora. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Aurora’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Aurora by taking into account your driving habits, and mileage.

1998 Oldsmobile Aurora Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Oldsmobile Aurora motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Oldsmobile Aurora engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Oldsmobile Aurora oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is 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 old cylinder walls.
