Oil Change Q&A for Your 1987 Renault Alliance

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Renault Alliance? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Renault Alliance engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Renault Alliance oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Renault Alliance exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
