1987 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Oldsmobile Delta 88 engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, 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 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 with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Oldsmobile Delta 88 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
