Not sure how or where to get your Oldsmobile Bravada’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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.”

Oldsmobile recommends having your 1994 Oldsmobile Bravada’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Bravada may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess 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 areas, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

1994 Oldsmobile Bravada Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Oldsmobile Bravada? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Bravada’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it 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 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? 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, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
