The Different Types of Oil

There are three different types of motor oil: Conventional oil, synthetic blend oil, and full synthetic oil. Your Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, or RAM owner's manual will provide guidelines on the recommended oil type for your vehicle and its recommended oil change intervals.

As a rule of thumb, get a regular oil change every 6 months or every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, whichever comes first. If your vehicle has over 75,000 miles on it, our dealership service experts can determine if high-mileage oil is necessary for your car. Our service department will help you determine an oil change interval schedule that works best for your vehicle's needs.

Conventional Oil

Conventional oil is commonly used for light-duty, older model vehicles. It is often used for standard oil changes on low-mile engines and typically needs to be changed every 3,000 to 5,000 miles.

Semi-Synthetic Oil

Semi-synthetic oil is a mix of conventional and synthetic oil. The additives within the oil blend help it be more resistant to lower temperatures and oxidation. It should be changed every 5,000 to 7,500 miles.

Full-Synthetic Oil

Full-synthetic motor oil provides top-tier protection for high-performance vehicles and those who accumulate a lot of miles with their driving. It should be changed approximately every 7,500 to 10,000 miles, or even more depending on your vehicle and driving habits.

Signs You Need an Oil Change

Your car may be telling you that it's time for an oil change! Here are a few signs to look out for if your car is in need of an oil change:

  • Your check engine light or oil change indicator light comes on
  • Your oil is dark brown or black and its texture is irregular
  • Your engine oil level is low
  • Your engine is running unusually loud
  • You notice abnormal vibrations or shaking when idling

If you notice any of these signs, schedule an oil change as soon as possible to prevent any potential damage from occurring under the hood.

The Importance of Oil Changes

You may ask yourself, "Why are oil changes important?" Oil is the lifeblood of any vehicle. It protects your engine parts and keeps your vehicle running smoothly. While protecting your engine, motor oil also keeps your engine clean and lubricated. As your engine is running, oil cools down the engine and ensures your car doesn't overheat while you're on the road.

Routine oil changes keep debris or particles from getting stuck in the engine and prevent buildup and sludge from forming over time. If you wait to get an oil change, you risk damaging your engine and transmission due to the increase in friction between engine parts.

Good, clean oil improves the lifespan of your vehicle and your gas mileage, directly impacting your fuel economy. Our experts can help you navigate the variety of benefits that regular oil changes have on your vehicle.
