How Often to Change 1983 Oldsmobile Firenza Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1983 Oldsmobile Firenza? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too.

Oldsmobile recommends having your 1983 Oldsmobile Firenza’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Firenza may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Oldsmobile if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Oldsmobile Firenza. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1983 Oldsmobile Firenza Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Oldsmobile Firenza motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Oldsmobile Firenza engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Oldsmobile Firenza oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? 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, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
