How Often to Change 2013 Chrysler 200 Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Chrysler 200’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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.”

Your 2013 200’s oil should be changed according to Chrysler’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your 200 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Chrysler recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Chrysler 200. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Chrysler 200 Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2013 Chrysler 200 motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Chrysler has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2013 Chrysler 200 vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your 200’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your 200 by considering your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2013 Chrysler 200 Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Chrysler 200 engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your 200’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Chrysler 200 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 Chrysler 200 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
