1990 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Oil Change Q&A

  • 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, overheat, and eventually lead to Oldsmobile Delta 88 engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Oldsmobile Delta 88 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? 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, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
