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.

Your 1997 Cirrus’s oil should be changed according to Chrysler’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Cirrus may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Chrysler recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Chrysler Cirrus. 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 Type of Oil Does My Chrysler Cirrus Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Chrysler Cirrus. Chrysler has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 1997 Cirrus. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Cirrus’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Cirrus by considering your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1997 Chrysler Cirrus Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Chrysler Cirrus motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Chrysler Cirrus engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Chrysler Cirrus 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Chrysler exhaust smoke gray or blue? 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
