How Often to Get 1999 Oldsmobile Aurora Oil Changes

Need more info about 1999 Oldsmobile Aurora oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of 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.”

Your 1999 Aurora’s oil should be changed according to Oldsmobile’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Aurora may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Oldsmobile recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Oldsmobile Aurora. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Oldsmobile Aurora?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1999 Oldsmobile Aurora motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Oldsmobile has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1999 Aurora. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Aurora’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving preferences, and mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1999 Oldsmobile Aurora

  • Should I check my Oldsmobile Aurora motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, 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 oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
