Oil Change Q&A for Your 1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

  • What can low oil do to my Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Oldsmobile oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. 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 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
