1987 Chrysler LeBaron Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Chrysler LeBaron engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your LeBaron’s 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 LeBaron oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. 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? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
