Oil Change Q&A for Your 2004 Chrysler Concorde

  • What can low oil do to my Chrysler Concorde engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Chrysler Concorde engine to fail. 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? 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 changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Chrysler Concorde 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, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
