When to Change 2006 Chrysler 300 Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Chrysler 300’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Chrysler recommends changing your 2006 300’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your 300 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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 at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Chrysler 300. 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 Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Chrysler 300?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2006 Chrysler 300 motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Chrysler has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 2006 Chrysler 300 vehicles. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your 300's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other 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 300 by taking into account your driving style, and odometer.

2006 Chrysler 300 Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Chrysler 300 engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your 300’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Chrysler 300 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Chrysler 300 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. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
