1988 Chrysler Fifth Avenue Oil Change

How Often to Change 1988 Chrysler Fifth Avenue Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1988 Chrysler Fifth Avenue? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about 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 having your 1988 Chrysler Fifth Avenue’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Chrysler-recommended oil change intervals, your Fifth Avenue may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle 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 go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Chrysler Fifth Avenue. 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.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 1988 Chrysler Fifth Avenue?

1988 Chrysler Fifth Avenue Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Chrysler Fifth Avenue motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Chrysler Fifth Avenue engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Chrysler oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
