Oil Changes for 1986 Chrysler Laser

How Often to Change 1986 Chrysler Laser Oil

Need more info about 1986 Chrysler Laser oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 1986 Laser’s oil should be changed according to Chrysler’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Laser may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, 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, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Chrysler Laser. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1986 Chrysler Laser Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Chrysler Laser motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Chrysler Laser engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces 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 Laser spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
