Dodge recommends changing your 2008 Grand Caravan’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Grand Caravan in the above table. Your Grand Caravan may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust.

2008 Dodge Grand Caravan Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Dodge Grand Caravan engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Grand Caravan’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Dodge oil on my own? 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 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. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
