Your 1984 Custom Cruiser’s oil should be changed according to Oldsmobile’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Custom Cruiser in the above table.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1984 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser

  • What can low oil do to my Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser 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 with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
