Need more info about 1991 Dodge Colt oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about 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 changing your 1991 Colt’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Colt may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Dodge if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Dodge Colt. 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1991 Dodge Colt

  • What can low oil do to my Dodge Colt engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Dodge Colt engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Dodge Colt oil at home? 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Dodge Colt exhaust smoke grayish 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
