Oil Change Q&A for Your 2001 Oldsmobile Intrigue

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Oldsmobile Intrigue? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Oldsmobile Intrigue engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change 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. 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 Intrigue spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. 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, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
