How Often to Change 1987 Dodge Diplomat Oil

Need more info about 1987 Dodge Diplomat oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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 having your 1987 Dodge Diplomat’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Diplomat in the above table. Your Diplomat may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds 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, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Dodge Diplomat. 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.

Dodge has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1987 Diplomat. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine.

You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1987 Dodge Diplomat Oil Change Q&A

  • 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 components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Dodge Diplomat engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Dodge Diplomat oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. 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 exhaust smoke gray 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 the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
