Oldsmobile recommends having your 1999 Oldsmobile Intrigue’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table.

Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Oldsmobile Intrigue.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1999 Oldsmobile Intrigue

  • What can low oil do to my Oldsmobile Intrigue engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Oldsmobile Intrigue engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Oldsmobile Intrigue 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. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Oldsmobile Intrigue spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
