Oldsmobile recommends having your 1990 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Custom Cruiser in the above table. 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. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Oldsmobile recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, 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. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 1990 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser.

During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your Custom Cruiser’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Custom Cruiser by taking into account your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1990 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser

  • Should I check my Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser engine failure. 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. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. 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.
