Questions About 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser Engine Tune-Ups

  • When should Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser spark plugs be replaced? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Oldsmobile’s recommendations.
  • What does a puddle underneath my Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser mean? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser engine than others? You can make your driving habits more engine-friendly. Hard starts and stops can increase the stress on engine parts, especially over many years. Boost your fuel economy and care for your engine by using gradual, smooth starts and stops instead.
