How Often to Change 1996 Dodge Intrepid Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1996 Dodge Intrepid? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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 1996 Intrepid’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Intrepid in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Intrepid may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Dodge recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Dodge Intrepid. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1996 Dodge Intrepid

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Dodge Intrepid? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Intrepid’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Dodge oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d 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 Intrepid spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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 the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
