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.

Your 1999 LSS’s oil should be changed according to Oldsmobile’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your LSS may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Oldsmobile if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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.

1999 Oldsmobile LSS Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Oldsmobile LSS? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Oldsmobile LSS engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil 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 figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Oldsmobile LSS spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
