Oil Change Q&A for Your 1983 Chrysler Fifth Avenue

  • Should I check my Chrysler Fifth Avenue motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Chrysler Fifth Avenue engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Chrysler oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Chrysler Fifth Avenue exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
