Oldsmobile recommends changing your 1990 Cutlass Cruiser’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Cutlass Cruiser may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1990 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 your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Cutlass Cruiser’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser oil at home? 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
  • Who can change the oil on my Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care for Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser oil changes. In addition to changing your oil, our experienced technicians also perform oil filter replacements, troubleshoot oil leaks, and suggest the correct oil to help keep your engine performing its best.
  • What does it mean if my Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser oil light comes on? If you’re overdue for an oil change, it might trigger your Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser oil change reminder light. If the oil pressure light is illuminated, it could be due to low engine oil, a failing oil pump, a malfunctioning oil pressure sensor, or a clogged oil filter.
  • Do I need to change my Cutlass Cruiser's oil filter when I get an oil change? It's recommended that you replace your Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser oil filter with every oil change. Otherwise, you send fresh, clean motor oil through a dirty filter. That's like putting on muddy socks after a shower.
