Oldsmobile recommends having your 1998 Oldsmobile LSS’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your LSS may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Oldsmobile LSS. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

1998 Oldsmobile LSS Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Oldsmobile LSS? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Oldsmobile LSS engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Oldsmobile LSS oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. 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. 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 old cylinder walls.
