Depending on your engine, Mopar and Berlin City CDJR could recommend a range of oils including API Certified SAE 5W-20 Engine Oil, meeting the requirements of Chrysler Material Standard MS-6395 such as MOPAR®, Pennzoil®, and Shell Helix®. Refer to your engine oil filler cap for the correct SAE grade. Depending on your vehicle, they may also highly recommend the use of fully synthetic oil. It is recommended that you use Pennzoil UltraTM 0W-40 or equivalent MOPAR® engine oil that meets the necessary requirements for use in operating temperatures.
Synthetic oil is engineered from base oil, powder additives, and carrier oil. Together this enforces a more even distribution of the additives to help the lubrication process. Older models and models with conventional oil should stop by for a routine oil change every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. While synthetic oil can last between 7,500 to 10,000 miles depending on driving conditions and driving habits. During this time, we will also replace your oil filter to ensure clean oil and optimal lubrication. Synthetic Oil Benefits include:
When to schedule your routine oil change will depend on your driving habits, vehicle’s year, and your vehicle’s make. Your owner’s manual and “Oil Change Required” message are a great way to stay informed. If you receive a warning, have your vehicle serviced as soon as possible within the next 500 miles. Under no circumstances should oil change intervals exceed 10,000 miles (16,000 km), 12 months or 350 hours of engine run time, whichever comes first.
Conventional oil usually last from 3,000 to 5,000 miles, while synthetic oil can last from 7,500 to 10,000 miles.
