Hi Here Im using Dodge Dart 2014 2.4 Tiger Shark Limited and lived here in Middle East superb Hot weather condition only using 10W40 Fully synthetic Oil for past 2 years and no issues at all and pro long oil usage upto 15,000 Km interval to due change.I finally tried 5W-30 Quaker State Full Synthetic in my 2.4L Dodge Dart due to oil consumption. This was after trying 5W-20 with no change in consumption.
I wanted to pass on to the Forum that for my vehicle (2014 Dodge Dart 2.4L) using 5W-30 cut the oil consumption in half. Unfortunately I still have to check it between oil changes. I have driven it most of the Summer with no problems but have not driven it in the Winter. The Winters are mild here and rarely get much below 32 Degrees F. so I think the 5W will be adequate at startup.
Now for the second phase of this question: Has anyone tried 10W-40 or 0W-40 in their 2.4 Liter Dodge Dart? Understand this is a considerable jump in viscosity from the 0W-20 recommended by the manufacturer? Please reply!!
I am hoping to find an oil that will last the entire oil change interval without causing damage to the engine or impacting the variable valve timing.
Any brave individuals out there that have tried -40 weight oil with a 2.4L Dodge Dart and would care to discuss? View attachment 114140
