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.

Overall i had an amazing experience here and recommend anybody looking for a car to check them out and ask for Meagan. I went here to shop for a Jeep Wrangler on Labor Day weekend (crazy time to shop for a car), and was promptly approached/greeted by Meagan and staff. I told her what I was looking for and she got to work. We looked at multiple trims and packages, all of which she was very knowledgeable about before finally coming to a decision. Throughout the whole process she was patient, attentive, cooperative, and genuine. I felt comfortable and as though she had my best interest in mind. She really worked with me to get me a deal i couldn’t refuse. Proud to say I’m currently an owner of a 2019 Jeep Wrangler Sahara. Thanks Meagan!

I couldn’t be happier with my experience here! Shah was incredibly welcoming, professional, and prompt, making sure that all of my questions were answered before I left. After wasting several hours at the Teterboro dealership, I was very satisfied with how quick I was able to go home with my new Jeep.

I had an issue arise with my wrangler’s rear differential the week before I was scheduled to depart on a 2,400 mile round-trip drive. The service advisors and techs here, namely Michael Carbone and Joseph Castaldo, respectively, understood the urgency and severity of my issue. Michael had me scheduled for an appointment to have my jeep diagnosed and worked on the following morning as soon as they opened. The turnaround time between drop-off, diagnosis, repair, and return to me was mind-blowingly quick. They had my jeep fixed and ready to be picked up the same day that they had begun work on it. This was especially shocking to me as I had had this exact repair performed a while back at another dealer and it took two weeks to complete... Not only did they complete the work fast, but they did it well, too. Since completion of the work I have driven 2,400+ miles from NJ to FL and back, all while towing a trailer and two motorcycles, with ZERO issues. The friendliness, professionalism, sheer speed, and care/concern for my personal circumstances surrounding the issue far exceeded my expectations. I will 100% be returning for repairs beyond my scope in the future and I will recommend others to do the same.
