1992 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 parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
