How Often to Change 1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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.

Oldsmobile recommends having your 1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Oldsmobile-recommended oil change intervals, your Silhouette may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Oldsmobile Silhouette. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette

  • Should I check my Oldsmobile Silhouette motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Oldsmobile Silhouette engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Oldsmobile Silhouette 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. 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 Silhouette exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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 damaged cylinder walls.
