Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 1993 Bravada’s oil should be changed according to Oldsmobile’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Bravada may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds 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, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Oldsmobile Bravada. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1993 Oldsmobile Bravada Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Oldsmobile Bravada motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these 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. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Oldsmobile Bravada spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
