How Often to Change 2009 Dodge Avenger Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Dodge Avenger’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2009 Avenger’s oil should be changed according to Dodge’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Dodge-recommended oil change intervals, your Avenger may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Dodge if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Dodge Avenger. 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 Dodge Avenger?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Dodge Avenger. Dodge has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 2009 Avenger. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your Avenger’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving habits, and odometer.

2009 Dodge Avenger Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Dodge Avenger engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Dodge Avenger 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 Dodge Avenger oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Dodge exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
