How Often to Get 1999 Chrysler Cirrus Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1999 Chrysler Cirrus? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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 changing your 1999 Cirrus’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Chrysler-recommended oil change intervals, your Cirrus may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of 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 terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1999 Chrysler Cirrus

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Chrysler Cirrus? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much 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 oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 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. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
