When to Change 2011 Dodge Avenger Engine Oil

Need more info about 2011 Dodge Avenger oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of 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.”

Dodge recommends having your 2011 Dodge Avenger’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Avenger may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, 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 Dodge if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Dodge Avenger. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2011 Dodge Avenger Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Dodge Avenger engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, 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 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Dodge Avenger exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
