Your 1993 Silhouette’s oil should be changed according to Oldsmobile’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Silhouette in the above table.

1993 Oldsmobile Silhouette Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Oldsmobile Silhouette motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Oldsmobile Silhouette engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Oldsmobile oil on my own? 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. 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
