How Often to Get 1985 Oldsmobile Firenza Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1985 Oldsmobile Firenza? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Oldsmobile recommends changing your 1985 Firenza’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Firenza may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle 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 Firenza. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Oldsmobile Firenza?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Oldsmobile Firenza. Oldsmobile has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 1985 Oldsmobile Firenza vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your Firenza's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Firenza by considering your driving preferences, and mileage.

1985 Oldsmobile Firenza Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Oldsmobile Firenza? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Oldsmobile Firenza engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Oldsmobile Firenza oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Oldsmobile Firenza exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
