How Often to Get 1989 Dodge Caravan Oil Changes

Need more info about 1989 Dodge Caravan oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Dodge recommends having your 1989 Dodge Caravan’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Caravan may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Dodge recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Dodge Caravan. 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’s the Right Type of Oil for 1989 Dodge Caravan?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Dodge Caravan. Dodge has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 1989 Dodge Caravan vehicles. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your Caravan’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving preferences, and mileage.

1989 Dodge Caravan Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Dodge Caravan motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Caravan’s engine to fail. 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? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Dodge 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. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
