Oldsmobile recommends changing your 2003 Aurora’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above.

2003 Oldsmobile Aurora Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Oldsmobile Aurora? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Aurora’s 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? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly 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 the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
