Oil Change Q&A for Your 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

  • What can low oil do to my Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Oldsmobile oil on my own? 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera exhaust smoke grayish 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 old cylinder walls.
