OK, now i know there has been some debate as to which grade oil to use (i think we can all agree on the brand pretty much - mobil 1 synthetic)... now the owners manual says 10w-30... but i've heard some word that it has been changed to 5w-30. Does anyone have any inside info or insight as to which would be best? thanks. :lol:

Just to satisy your question. FACTORY RECOMMEND IS 10W30. You can use whichever you like, but Dodge suggests 10W30. I've done some in depth research to get the 100% correct answer, so trust me on this.
About the FAQ. I may try coming up with one in a few days if I get some spare time. Maybe it'll help satisfy my SRT-4 needs til the car arrives. Then you guys are on your own! LOL! j/k!

I live up in RI :( , so 10w-30 for summer, and 5w-30 for winter would be best? :idea:

OK, now if you use a fully synthetic oil. How often do you change the oil? Every 3,6, or 12,000 miles? Cause my Mom just got a Mini Cooper S and it uses fully synthetic oil but doesn't call for the first oil change till 12,000 miles. Any info could help.

Can't wait to get my SRT-4 and blow my mom's Mini away! :twisted:

i think with a turbocharged car like the SRT-4 you should really stick to every 3000 miles for best results. :shock:

I subscribe to the every 3000 mile theory. Remember, it won't hurt you to change it more often.
