Your Challenger may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Dodge recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Dodge Challenger. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2017 Dodge Challenger Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Dodge Challenger engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Dodge Challenger engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Dodge Challenger oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Dodge exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
