How Often to Change 2012 Chrysler 300 Oil

Need more info about 2012 Chrysler 300 oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about 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.”

Chrysler recommends having your 2012 Chrysler 300’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 300 in the above table. Outside of Chrysler-recommended oil change intervals, your 300 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Chrysler if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, 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?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Chrysler 300. Chrysler has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2012 300. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your 300’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your 300 by taking into account your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2012 Chrysler 300 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Chrysler 300? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Chrysler 300 engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • 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. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce 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 300 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of 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, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
