How Often to Change 1988 Chrysler Conquest Oil

Need more info about 1988 Chrysler Conquest oil changes? 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.”

Chrysler recommends changing your 1988 Conquest’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Conquest may need its oil changed ASAP 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 an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Chrysler if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Chrysler Conquest. 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.

You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Conquest by taking into account your driving habits, and odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1988 Chrysler Conquest

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Chrysler Conquest? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Conquest’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Chrysler Conquest 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. 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 Chrysler Conquest spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
