When to Change 1991 Oldsmobile Toronado Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Oldsmobile Toronado’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Oldsmobile recommends changing your 1991 Toronado’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Oldsmobile-recommended oil change intervals, your Toronado may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Oldsmobile recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Oldsmobile Toronado. 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.

1991 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 runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Toronado’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • 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 buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. 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 Toronado exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
