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 1992 Bravada’s oil should be changed according to Oldsmobile’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Bravada may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Oldsmobile if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Oldsmobile Bravada. 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1992 Oldsmobile Bravada

  • Should I check my Oldsmobile Bravada motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Oldsmobile Bravada engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Oldsmobile Bravada oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Oldsmobile exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
