1990 Oldsmobile Toronado Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Oldsmobile Toronado engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Oldsmobile Toronado engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Oldsmobile Toronado oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
