Q: How often should I have my oil changed?

A: You should refer to your owner’s manual for your proper oil change interval; and if you drive a 2008 or newer Chrysler, Dodge, FIAT®, Jeep® or Ram Brand vehicle, the oil change indicator system will alert you when you need to change your oil. Vehicles built prior to 2008 follow a 3-month/5,000-kilometre oil change interval. When you do need it changed, our Mopar® service lane can get it done in 30 minutes or less! Plus, we do lots of courtesy checkups and top off fluids with every oil change. It doesn’t matter what make or model your vehicle is. We do them all!

  • The quality and composition of your brake components

Q: How does the oil change indicator system alert you?

A: Depending on how your vehicle is equipped, the oil change indicator system can display various messages (change oil soon / change oil now) and will indicate the percentage of oil life remaining.

A fixed oil change indicator system was first introduced in the 2008 model year and is similar to the new variable oil change indicator system introduced for the 2013 model year. Advancements in engine design, engine oil formulation and vehicle electronics allow for the extension of engine oil change intervals. These advancements reduce the environmental impact of oil changes and help reduce ownership and maintenance costs.

The new system utilizes a fully variable metrage algorithm and monitors driving habits, hardware differences and environmental conditions continuously compared to the previous system that did not adjust the oil drain interval beyond 5,600 kilometres. Also, the new system supports the “Percent Oil Life Remaining” dash display along with the “Change Oil Soon” and “Change Oil Now” dash display features.

When it’s time for an oil change, our Mopar service lane can do it in 30 minutes or less and we do a whole list of courtesy checkups with every oil change.

Q: What kind of oil should I use?

A: There are three kinds of engine oil: regular, blended and synthetic; and there are many viscosities, like 10W-40 or 20W-50, for example. My best advice is to refer to your owner’s manual for the proper viscosity and type. By the way, no matter what make or model your vehicle is, we can take care of changing the oil right here in our Mopar service lane and we do it in 30 minutes or less! Plus, we do a whole list of courtesy checkups with every oil change. Bring your vehicle into any Chrysler, Dodge, FIAT, Jeep or Ram dealer, and we’ll take care of it for you.

Q: Can regular oil changes improve my gas mileage?

A: Absolutely. Engine oil filters suspend dirt, metal particles and sludge, allowing only clean oil to circulate through the engine. Clean oil also contributes to better fuel economy. Mopar filters are designed using FCA US LLC Engineering specifications, which means they help maintain peak engine efficiency and performance. Also, no matter what make or model your vehicle is, we can change the oil right here in our Mopar service lane. Your Mopar dealer has the right Magneti Marelli Offered by Mopar oil filter and we do an extensive courtesy checkup with every oil change.
