When to Change 1988 Dodge Dynasty Engine Oil

Need more info about 1988 Dodge Dynasty oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of 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 1988 Dodge Dynasty’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Dynasty may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Dodge Dynasty. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Dodge Dynasty Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1988 Dodge Dynasty motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Dodge has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 1988 Dynasty. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Dynasty’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving habits, and mileage.

1988 Dodge Dynasty Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Dodge Dynasty? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Dodge Dynasty engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Dodge Dynasty oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Dodge Dynasty 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
