Oil Change Q&A for Your 1984 Dodge Diplomat

  • Should I check my Dodge Diplomat motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Diplomat’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Dodge Diplomat 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 changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Dodge Diplomat exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of 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.
