How Often to Get 2008 Chrysler 300 Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Chrysler 300’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. 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 2008 300’s oil should be changed according to Chrysler’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 300 in the above table. Your 300 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 notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Chrysler if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Chrysler 300. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2008 Chrysler 300 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Chrysler 300? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your 300’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Chrysler oil on my own? 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Chrysler 300 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
