1992 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
