1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Cutlass Calais’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 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, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
