How Often to Get 1985 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Oldsmobile Delta 88’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. 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 Delta 88’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Delta 88 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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 drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Oldsmobile Delta 88. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1985 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Oldsmobile Delta 88? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Oldsmobile Delta 88 engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Oldsmobile oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. 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 with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Oldsmobile Delta 88 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
