1986 Oldsmobile Toronado Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Oldsmobile Toronado motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Oldsmobile Toronado engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Oldsmobile Toronado oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Oldsmobile Toronado 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, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
