Your 1987 Custom Cruiser’s oil should be changed according to Oldsmobile’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Custom Cruiser may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1987 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser engine failure. 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? 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces 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 Custom Cruiser exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
