How Often to Change 1983 Chrysler Imperial Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Chrysler Imperial’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just 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 1983 Imperial’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Imperial in the above table. Outside of Chrysler-recommended oil change intervals, your Imperial may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Chrysler recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Chrysler Imperial. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1983 Chrysler Imperial Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Chrysler Imperial? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Chrysler Imperial engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Chrysler Imperial oil at home? 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. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Chrysler exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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 old cylinder walls.
