How Often to Change 1984 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1984 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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 1984 Cutlass Calais’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Oldsmobile-recommended oil change intervals, your Cutlass Calais may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Oldsmobile if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais. 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.

1984 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais 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. 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 Cutlass Calais spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
