Oil Change Q&A for Your 1984 Renault Fuego

  • Should I check my Renault Fuego motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Fuego’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 Renault oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. 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 Renault exhaust smoke gray or blue? 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 the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
