1994 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 parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Oldsmobile oil on my own? 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
