How Often to Change 1989 Plymouth Gran Fury Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Plymouth Gran Fury’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Plymouth recommends changing your 1989 Gran Fury’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Gran Fury may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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 terrain, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Plymouth Gran Fury. 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1989 Plymouth Gran Fury

  • Should I check my Plymouth Gran Fury motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Plymouth Gran Fury engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Plymouth Gran Fury oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Plymouth Gran Fury exhaust smoke grayish 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
  • Who can change the oil on my Plymouth Gran Fury? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care for Plymouth Gran Fury oil changes. In addition to changing your oil, our experienced technicians also perform oil filter replacements, troubleshoot oil leaks, and suggest the correct oil to help keep your engine performing its best.
  • Why is my Plymouth Gran Fury oil light illuminated? If you’re overdue for an oil change, it might trigger your Plymouth Gran Fury 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 Gran Fury's oil filter need to be changed during my 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.
