1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
