2004 Dodge Viper Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Dodge Viper? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Dodge Viper 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 Viper oil at home? 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 changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Dodge Viper exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
