How Often to Change 1998 Chrysler Cirrus Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1998 Chrysler Cirrus? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.

Chrysler recommends having your 1998 Chrysler Cirrus’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Cirrus may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Chrysler Cirrus. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 1998 Chrysler Cirrus?

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 1998 Cirrus. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Cirrus’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Cirrus by taking into account your driving style, and odometer.

1998 Chrysler Cirrus Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Chrysler Cirrus engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Chrysler Cirrus 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 Cirrus oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Chrysler Cirrus 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 the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
