1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Cutlass Cruiser’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
