How Often to Change 1990 Plymouth Acclaim Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Plymouth Acclaim’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Plymouth recommends changing your 1990 Acclaim’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Plymouth-recommended oil change intervals, your Acclaim may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Plymouth recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Plymouth Acclaim. 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.

During your oil change service, a technician will change your Acclaim's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Acclaim by taking into account your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1990 Plymouth Acclaim

  • Should I check my Plymouth Acclaim motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Plymouth Acclaim engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Plymouth Acclaim 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 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 Plymouth exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
  • Who offers Plymouth Acclaim oil changes? You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care for your Plymouth Acclaim oil change, oil filter replacement, oil leak diagnostics, and more! Our expert technicians will even advise the right oil for your vehicle.
  • Why is my Plymouth Acclaim oil light illuminated? If you’re overdue for an oil change, it might trigger your Plymouth Acclaim oil change reminder light. If the oil pressure light is illuminated, it could be due to low engine oil, a failing oil pump, a malfunctioning oil pressure sensor, or a clogged oil filter.
  • Does my Acclaim's oil filter need to be changed during my oil change? It’s highly advised you replace the oil filter in your Plymouth Acclaim every time you change the oil. After all, what’s the point of changing our oil if you’re just going to send fresh, clean engine oil through an already dirty filter?
