Dodge Charger: SERVICING AND MAINTENANCE / SCHEDULED SERVICING

Dodge Charger 2011-2023 Owner's Manual / SERVICING AND MAINTENANCE / SCHEDULED SERVICING

3.6L AND 5.7L ENGINES

These vehicles are equipped with an automatic oil change indicator system. The oil change indicator system will remind you that it is time to take your vehicle in for scheduled maintenance.

Based on engine operation conditions, the oil change indicator message will illuminate. This means that service is required for your vehicle. Operating conditions such as frequent short-trips, trailer tow, and extremely hot or cold ambient temperatures will influence when the “Change Oil” or “Oil Change Required” message is displayed. Have your vehicle serviced as soon as possible, within the next 500 miles (805 km).

The “Oil Change Required” message will be displayed in the instrument cluster and a single chime will sound, indicating that an oil change is necessary.

An authorized dealer will reset the oil change indicator message after completing the scheduled oil change. If a scheduled oil change is performed by someone other than an authorized dealer, the message can be reset by referring to “Instrument Cluster Display”.

NOTE:

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. The 350 hours of engine run or idle time is generally only a concern for fleet customers.

Once A Month Or Before A Long Trip:

  • Check engine oil level.
  • Check windshield washer fluid level.
  • Check tire pressure and look for unusual wear or damage. Rotate tires at the first sign of irregular wear, even if it occurs before your next scheduled service.
  • Check the fluid levels of the coolant reservoir, brake master cylinder, and power steering (if equipped) and fill as needed.
  • Check function of all interior and exterior lights.
