1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Cutlass Calais’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform 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. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
