Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2008 Dodge Durango? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about 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.

Dodge recommends changing your 2008 Durango’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Durango 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.

More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Dodge Durango. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2008 Dodge Durango Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Dodge Durango motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Durango’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Dodge Durango oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Dodge Durango exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
