When to Change 2010 Dodge Caliber Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2010 Dodge Caliber? 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.

Your 2010 Caliber’s oil should be changed according to Dodge’s recommended oil change 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 knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, 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, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. 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.

2010 Dodge Caliber Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Dodge Caliber? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Caliber’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Dodge oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
