When to Change 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Dodge Grand Caravan’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2010 Grand Caravan’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 Grand Caravan may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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 areas, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

2010 Dodge Grand Caravan Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Dodge Grand Caravan motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Dodge Grand Caravan engine failure. 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? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Dodge Grand Caravan exhaust smoke grayish 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, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
