1984 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Oldsmobile Delta 88 engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Delta 88’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Oldsmobile Delta 88 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 changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Oldsmobile Delta 88 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. 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.
  • Who offers Oldsmobile Delta 88 oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care for Oldsmobile Delta 88 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 Delta 88 oil light comes on? Your Oldsmobile Delta 88 oil change reminder light might illuminate if it’s been too long since your last oil change. On the other hand, the oil pressure light might illuminate due to a clogged oil filter, a faulty oil pressure sensor, low engine oil levels, or a malfunctioning oil pump.
  • Do I need to replace my Delta 88’s oil filter when changing my oil? You should replace your Oldsmobile Delta 88 during each oil change. The filter captures debris and contaminants to help keep your oil clean, which means the filter gets dirty. If you skip replacing the filter, you’ll contaminate your new oil with the dirty filter.
