Your 1985 Fifth Avenue’s oil should be changed according to Chrysler’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Fifth Avenue in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Fifth Avenue 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 excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Chrysler if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Chrysler Fifth Avenue. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1985 Chrysler Fifth Avenue

  • Should I check my Chrysler Fifth Avenue motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Chrysler Fifth Avenue engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Chrysler Fifth Avenue oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil 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 Fifth Avenue spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. 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 worn cylinder walls.
