How Often to Change 1985 Plymouth Colt Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1985 Plymouth Colt? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 having your 1985 Plymouth Colt’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Colt in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Colt may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Plymouth if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Plymouth Colt. 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Plymouth Colt Need?

You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Colt by taking into account your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1985 Plymouth Colt Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Plymouth Colt engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Plymouth Colt engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Plymouth Colt 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Plymouth Colt exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
  • Where can I get Plymouth Colt oil changes? Firestone Complete Auto Care performs Plymouth Colt oil changes and more! Our technicians also replace oil filters, troubleshoot oil leaks, and advise on the right oil for your ride.
  • Why is my Plymouth Colt oil light illuminated? Your Plymouth Colt oil change reminder light might illuminate if it’s been too long since your last oil change. On the other hand, the oil pressure light might illuminate due to a clogged oil filter, a faulty oil pressure sensor, low engine oil levels, or a malfunctioning oil pump.
  • Do I need to change my Colt's oil filter when I get an oil change? Every time you change the oil in your Plymouth Colt, you should also replace the oil filter. Otherwise, you risk contaminating your brand-new oil with the dirt and debris built up in your old filter.
