Chrysler recommends having your 2016 Chrysler 300’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your 300 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust.

Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Chrysler 300. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2016 Chrysler 300

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Chrysler 300? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Chrysler 300 engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Chrysler 300 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. 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 300 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
