Oldsmobile recommends having your 1989 Oldsmobile Delta 88’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Delta 88 in the above table. Outside of Oldsmobile-recommended oil change intervals, your Delta 88 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Oldsmobile recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Oldsmobile Delta 88. 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.

1989 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Oldsmobile Delta 88? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Oldsmobile Delta 88 engine failure. 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? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d 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 Delta 88 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
