Dodge recommends changing your 2008 Caliber’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Caliber may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Dodge Caliber. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

2008 Dodge Caliber Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Dodge Caliber engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Dodge Caliber engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Dodge 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Dodge Caliber spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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 the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
