Dodge recommends having your 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Grand Caravan in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Grand Caravan 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 an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Dodge recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Dodge Grand Caravan. 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.

1998 Dodge Grand Caravan Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Dodge Grand Caravan motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Dodge Grand Caravan engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Dodge Grand Caravan oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Dodge Grand Caravan spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
