How Often to Get 1983 Toyota Camry Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1983 Toyota Camry? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Toyota recommends having your 1983 Toyota Camry’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Toyota-recommended oil change intervals, your Camry may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Toyota if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Toyota Camry. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1983 Toyota Camry

  • Should I check my Toyota Camry motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Toyota Camry engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Toyota Camry oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 Toyota Camry 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 the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
