We'll Keep Your Engine Clean!

Whether you’re a new vehicle owner looking to learn more about proper automotive care or a long-time driver feeling a bit lost, Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Paramus is here to lend a hand. Today, we’d like to fill you in on the importance of oil changes and how often this task should be performed since many motorists still don’t feel confident when it comes to car maintenance. Be sure to reach out to our Service Department with any questions!

Recommended Timeline

In most cases, having your ride’s oil changed every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, or about every three to six months, is sufficient to keep your engine running smoothly and efficiently. However, there are several variables you should keep in mind that might affect this timeframe. First, larger models, such as trucks and SUVs that tow frequently, might need more frequent changes due to the extra burden of hauling various loads. Additionally, older models might also require more frequent attention. Besides your Owner’s Manual, your best resource if you’re unsure is our expert team of technicians. Just give us a call or complete the Ask a Tech form for assistance.

Why Are Oil Changes Necessary?

You might be wondering to yourself why oil changes are even necessary in the first place. Essentially, your engine requires a supply of oil in order to prevent its multiple moving parts from rubbing against another and creating excessive heat from the friction of metal-on-metal contact. Furthermore, oil prevents grime and other unwanted deposits from accumulating within your powertrain, which can also impact its performance and lifespan. If you go too long without changing out your batch of this fluid, you run the risk of contending with decreased fuel economy and, eventually, permanent damage to your engine.

Visit Us Today

If you wish to keep your car, truck, or SUV operating smoothly for years to come, be sure to visit us at the recommended interval for your routine oil changes. While you’re here, we’ll be sure to first ask if you prefer conventional or synthetic, as different drivers have varying needs. Additionally, don’t hesitate to let us know if your ride is due for any other type of service, like a tire rotation or battery check, as we’re always happy to bundle multiple jobs into one visit for your convenience. Finally, by allowing us to keep a closer eye on your model’s mechanics, we’ll be able to look out for any potential problems beneath the surface, so we can address them sooner and prevent costly repairs in the future.

So, how often should I change my oil? Here at Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Paramus, we’d like to see you at least every six months for this job. If you think you’re due, don’t wait another moment to pay us a visit! In the meantime, check out our current specials and promotions for some valuable deals.

I leaned a valuable lesson. Sometimes you expect something to go badly and after you think about it. You realize it actually went better than you thought. Ralph Russo was my service rep. This is old school service. Though very busy, Ralph.knows his work and treats you like you are his only customer. Listen to what this man has to say. He is only trying to do well for you and your vehicle. I will admit I had a bad experience once with a diagnostic fee and have that ready for a fight attitude. The dealers just want to ensure that you understand they can't look at your car for free. But I figured that when Mr. Russo didn't take my credit card he was just stating what could be. My appt was for 1030 I was out of there at 1040. I got my car back at 12 PM ! Just be clear make sure you only want what is covered by the warranty. But dont get miffed if the dealers want to recommend good quality maintenance. That's not an upsell and if it is? So what these dealers are here to make a living and are allowed to offer a premium price for a premium product. Ralph called a few times to tell me my car was ready. I hope he didn't use his private cell but seeing how good his service is I would see Ralph inviting you for dinner at his house and fixing your car himself. I think Ralph might have stayed late to make sure I got the car. Where do you see that today!!! Mr. Russo is why going into a retail location and getting a real person can't be done by a chat or phone. I am sure the rest of the reps are just as good but I have a choice I only want Mr. Russo - Ralph thanks for staying late for me. I would add, it would be great if they could add a courtesy car 🚘. Makes it easier, maybe a loaner if your car is here longer. Just a thought if there was anyway the oil changes could be a bit closer to the locals I would probably take the oil change. But I just saw the dealer will beat local prices. - mgmt you have a real old school service with Mr. Russo. Can someone reply that he read the review as well as mentioning that this was Frankel as this is my wife's car.

Outrageous waiting on Saturdays even with appointment but the customer service staff keeps updating you and establish timeframe of when work will be completed.

Mike Hickey is a gem! He gave me a fair price on my Jeep and beat Teterboro prices. Professional and kind salesman. I’m giving 4 stars because when it came to signing my lease- i felt rushed and intimidated by finance.

My husband bought a car a few months ago and we found out that the brakes needed to be replaced after only a few months. I brought the car in and spoke with Milton and he had them service the car right away. He was very helpful and put my mind at ease.

Great experience here!!! The salesman Efrain, sales managers Gary, and general manager Dean were great!!!! I got an AMAZING deal on this brand new Ram 1500. I cannot thank you guys enough. I highly recommend everyone to go here. I was greeted by all management. They treated me, my wife, and my 4 year old son like we were family. If you want a great truck go ask for Efrain over here. I will be sending all my friends and family there in the future.
