How Often to Get 1990 Plymouth Horizon Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1990 Plymouth Horizon? Look no further than 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 1990 Plymouth Horizon’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Horizon in the above table. Outside of Plymouth-recommended oil change intervals, your Horizon may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Plymouth recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Plymouth Horizon. 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 Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Plymouth Horizon?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Plymouth Horizon. Plymouth has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 1990 Horizon. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your Horizon's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1990 Plymouth Horizon Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Plymouth Horizon motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Plymouth Horizon engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Plymouth oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 with your vehicle 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, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
  • Who can change the oil on my Plymouth Horizon? You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care for your Plymouth Horizon 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 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.
  • Do I need to replace my Horizon’s oil filter when changing my oil? 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.
