How Often to Change 1985 Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon Oil

Need more info about 1985 Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Oldsmobile recommends changing your 1985 Cutlass Salon’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Oldsmobile-recommended oil change intervals, your Cutlass Salon may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Oldsmobile recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1985 Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of 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, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
