1983 Plymouth PB150 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Plymouth PB150? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your PB150’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 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Plymouth PB150 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
  • Who does Plymouth PB150 oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care for Plymouth PB150 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.
  • What can cause the oil light on my Plymouth PB150 to illuminate? Your Plymouth PB150 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 change my PB150's oil filter when I get an oil change? You should replace your Plymouth PB150 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.
