How Often to Get 1984 Dodge Aries Oil Changes

Need more info about 1984 Dodge Aries oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Dodge recommends changing your 1984 Aries’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Aries may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Dodge if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Dodge Aries. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Dodge Aries?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Dodge Aries. Dodge has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1984 Aries. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Aries’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Aries by considering your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1984 Dodge Aries Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Dodge Aries? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Dodge Aries engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Dodge Aries oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. 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 Dodge Aries spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
