How Often to Get 2000 Chrysler Cirrus Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Chrysler Cirrus’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just 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 2000 Chrysler Cirrus’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Cirrus 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, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Chrysler recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Chrysler Cirrus. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Chrysler Cirrus?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2000 Chrysler Cirrus motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Chrysler has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 2000 Cirrus. This oil helps lubricate engine 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, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Cirrus by taking into account your driving habits, and odometer.

2000 Chrysler Cirrus Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Chrysler Cirrus motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Cirrus’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 your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Chrysler Cirrus exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
