1986 Plymouth Gran Fury Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Plymouth Gran Fury motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Gran Fury’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Plymouth oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
  • Who offers Plymouth Gran Fury oil changes? You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care for your Plymouth Gran Fury oil change, oil filter replacement, oil leak diagnostics, and more! Our expert technicians will even advise the right oil for your vehicle.
  • What can cause the oil light on my Plymouth Gran Fury to illuminate? The oil change light in your Plymouth Gran Fury could be triggered by an overdue oil change. However, if the oil pressure light is on, you may be dealing with low engine oil, a failing oil pump, a clogged oil filter, or a malfunctioning oil pressure sensor.
  • Do I need to change my Gran Fury's oil filter when I get an oil change? Every time you change the oil in your Plymouth Gran Fury, 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.
