1985 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Oil Change Service

When to Change 1985 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1985 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Oldsmobile recommends changing your 1985 Custom Cruiser’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Custom Cruiser may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Oldsmobile recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser. 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1985 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Oldsmobile has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1985 Custom Cruiser. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your Custom Cruiser’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Custom Cruiser by considering your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1985 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Custom Cruiser’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil 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. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Oldsmobile exhaust smoke gray 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, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
