Oldsmobile recommends having your 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Cutlass Ciera may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, 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, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Cutlass Ciera’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
