How Often to Change 1994 Dodge Colt Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Dodge Colt’s oil changed? 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.”

Your 1994 Colt’s oil should be changed according to Dodge’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Colt may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds 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 terrain, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Dodge Colt. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1994 Dodge Colt Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Dodge Colt engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Dodge Colt engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil 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 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 Colt exhaust smoke grayish 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, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
