When to Change 2004 Dodge Intrepid Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Dodge Intrepid’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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 2004 Dodge Intrepid’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Intrepid 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. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Dodge recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Dodge Intrepid. 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.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Dodge Intrepid?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2004 Dodge Intrepid motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Dodge has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2004 Intrepid. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your Intrepid’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving preferences, and odometer.

2004 Dodge Intrepid Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Dodge Intrepid? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Dodge Intrepid engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Dodge Intrepid oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce 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. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
