    first oil change

    so i was at work today and i had ordred the "special oil" for the 1.4L tiger shark engine yesterday. so i did an oil change...yes i only have 1044 miles on my car. that is okay.

    ps. dont mind the messy and unorganized tool box. still middle of the day

    quick pick of the the oil and filter. 4.5 quarts of oil are needed and one filter:

    Owner's manual only says 4 qt, make sure you didn't put too much in.

    It also mentions that you should check the oil after it has warmed up to operating temperatures. Where did you get your oil? I've been looking around and nobody carries 5w-40.

    you can get it from you various places. if the don't have it on the shelf then you can order it. I can't beat dealer price though. $5.00 a quart. plus $5.25 for filter.

    Thanks for the info. I'm still waiting for my dart to come in, but it was a concern I had looking around for oil.

    Oil change

    I got on the dodge website and registered my car and it was telling me my next service was at 10k miles including oil change is this right? Do they really go that long on oil?

    Yes. Modern engine technology/manufacturing and new automotive oils are much better than they were even 10-15 years ago.

    -10k mikes
    -12 months
    -when the car displays "oil change due"

    Whichever comes first.
