How Often to Get 1998 Dodge Intrepid Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1998 Dodge Intrepid? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Dodge recommends having your 1998 Dodge Intrepid’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Dodge-recommended oil change intervals, your Intrepid may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, 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, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Dodge Intrepid Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1998 Dodge Intrepid motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Dodge has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1998 Intrepid. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your Intrepid’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Intrepid by considering your driving habits, and odometer.

1998 Dodge Intrepid Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Dodge Intrepid? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Dodge Intrepid engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Dodge Intrepid oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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 Intrepid 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. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
