When to Change 1987 Dodge Caravan Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1987 Dodge Caravan? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just 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 having your 1987 Dodge Caravan’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 Caravan may need an oil change if your check engine 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, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Dodge Caravan. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Dodge Caravan Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1987 Dodge Caravan motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Dodge has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 1987 Dodge Caravan vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your Caravan’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 drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Caravan by taking into account your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1987 Dodge Caravan Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Dodge Caravan engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Dodge Caravan engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Dodge Caravan oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly 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, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
