1989 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Oil Change Service

When to Change 1989 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.”

Your 1989 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. Outside of Oldsmobile-recommended oil change intervals, your Custom Cruiser may need an oil change 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 may also need an oil change more frequently than Oldsmobile recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. 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 Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser?

1989 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser? 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 you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Oldsmobile oil on my own? 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. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly 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. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
