When to Change 1996 Chrysler Concorde Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Chrysler Concorde’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of 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 1996 Concorde’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Concorde may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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 terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Chrysler Concorde. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Chrysler Concorde Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Chrysler Concorde. Chrysler has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 1996 Concorde. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your Concorde’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Concorde by considering your driving preferences, and mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1996 Chrysler Concorde

  • Should I check my Chrysler Concorde motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Chrysler Concorde engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Chrysler Concorde oil at home? 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Chrysler Concorde exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
