Oldsmobile recommends changing your 2001 Aurora’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Aurora in the above table. Your Aurora 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, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust.

Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Oldsmobile Aurora. 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.

2001 Oldsmobile Aurora Oil Change Questions

  • 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 it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Oldsmobile Aurora oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Oldsmobile Aurora spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
