We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Oldsmobile recommends having your 1985 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Oldsmobile-recommended oil change intervals, your Cutlass Ciera may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Oldsmobile recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1985 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • 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 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 Ciera spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
