Oil Change Q&A for Your 1994 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess 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 Cutlass Ciera oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Oldsmobile exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
