When to Change 1995 Oldsmobile Silhouette Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1995 Oldsmobile Silhouette? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Oldsmobile recommends changing your 1995 Silhouette’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Silhouette may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Oldsmobile if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Oldsmobile Silhouette. 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Oldsmobile Silhouette Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1995 Oldsmobile Silhouette motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Oldsmobile has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1995 Silhouette. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your Silhouette’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving preferences, and odometer.

1995 Oldsmobile Silhouette Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Oldsmobile Silhouette? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Oldsmobile Silhouette engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Oldsmobile Silhouette oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Oldsmobile Silhouette exhaust smoke grayish 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. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
