If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Plymouth Acclaim engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.

  • Why is my Plymouth Acclaim spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro 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.
