1984 Dodge B150 Oil Change

When to Change 1984 Dodge B150 Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Dodge B150’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 1984 B150’s oil should be changed according to Dodge’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Dodge-recommended oil change intervals, your B150 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Dodge recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Dodge B150. 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 Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Dodge B150?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1984 Dodge B150 motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Dodge has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 1984 B150. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your B150’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your B150 by considering your driving style, and mileage.

1984 Dodge B150 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Dodge B150? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Dodge B150 engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Dodge 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. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Dodge exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
