Dodge recommends having your 1989 Dodge B150’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. 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, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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 areas, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Dodge B150. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1989 Dodge B150 Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Dodge B150 engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Dodge B150 engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Dodge 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. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Dodge exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of 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 damaged cylinder walls.
