Oil Change Q&A for Your 1990 Dodge D150

  • What can low oil do to my Dodge D150 engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Dodge D150 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Dodge D150 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
