How Often to Change 1985 Plymouth Horizon Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Plymouth Horizon’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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.

Your 1985 Horizon’s oil should be changed according to Plymouth’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Horizon may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Plymouth recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Plymouth Horizon. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1985 Plymouth Horizon Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Plymouth Horizon engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Horizon’s 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 Horizon oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform 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, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
  • Who can change the oil on my Plymouth Horizon? Firestone Complete Auto Care is here to care for your vehicle with our Plymouth Horizon oil changes and more. Our expert technicians will also suggest the best oil for your vehicle, address oil leaks, and swap out your oil filter.
  • What can cause the oil light on my Plymouth Horizon to illuminate? Your Plymouth Horizon oil change reminder light may come on if you're overdue for an oil change. The oil pressure light will typically come on if the oil level in the engine is too low, the oil pump is failing, you have a clogged oil filter, or there's a faulty oil pressure sensor.
  • Should the oil filter be replaced when getting an oil change for my Plymouth Horizon? You should replace your Plymouth Horizon during each oil change. The filter captures debris and contaminants to help keep your oil clean, which means the filter gets dirty. If you skip replacing the filter, you’ll contaminate your new oil with the dirty filter.
