When to Change 1989 Plymouth Reliant Engine Oil

Need more info about 1989 Plymouth Reliant oil changes? 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 1989 Reliant’s oil should be changed according to Plymouth’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Reliant may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, 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 areas, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Plymouth Reliant. 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 Type of Oil Does My Plymouth Reliant Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Plymouth Reliant. Plymouth has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1989 Reliant. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your Reliant’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Reliant by taking into account your driving habits, and odometer.

1989 Plymouth Reliant Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Plymouth Reliant motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Plymouth Reliant 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 Reliant oil at home? 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Plymouth exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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.
  • Where can I get Plymouth Reliant oil changes? Firestone Complete Auto Care is here to care for your vehicle with our Plymouth Reliant 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 does it mean if my Plymouth Reliant oil light comes on? Your Plymouth Reliant oil change reminder light might illuminate if it’s been too long since your last oil change. On the other hand, the oil pressure light might illuminate due to a clogged oil filter, a faulty oil pressure sensor, low engine oil levels, or a malfunctioning oil pump.
  • Does my Reliant's oil filter need to be changed during my oil change? It's recommended that you replace your Plymouth Reliant oil filter with every oil change. Otherwise, you send fresh, clean motor oil through a dirty filter. That's like putting on muddy socks after a shower.
