How Often to Get 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue Oil Changes

Need more info about 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Oldsmobile recommends having your 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Oldsmobile-recommended oil change intervals, your Intrigue may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Oldsmobile if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Oldsmobile Intrigue. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue

  • What can low oil do to my Oldsmobile Intrigue engine? 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, overheat, and eventually lead to Oldsmobile Intrigue engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Oldsmobile Intrigue oil at home? 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 professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Oldsmobile Intrigue exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
