1983 Renault LeCar Oil Change Service

How Often to Get 1983 Renault LeCar Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1983 Renault LeCar? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Renault recommends having your 1983 Renault LeCar’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your LeCar in the above table. No matter the mileage, your LeCar may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Renault if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Renault LeCar. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Renault LeCar?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Renault LeCar. Renault has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 1983 LeCar. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your LeCar's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your LeCar by taking into account your driving preferences, weather and road conditions,

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1983 Renault LeCar

  • Should I check my Renault LeCar motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Renault LeCar engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Renault LeCar 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 Renault LeCar spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
