Chrysler recommends changing your 2004 300M’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your 300M 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 car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Chrysler recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Chrysler 300M. 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 2004 Chrysler 300M

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Chrysler 300M? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your 300M’s engine to fail. 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 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Chrysler exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
