What kind of oil does a 2015 Chrysler 200 take?

I just bought a car for my son’s 18th birthday. But before I give it to him this weekend, I’d like to change the oil and filter. What kind of oil does a 2015 Chrysler 200 take?

You didn’t say what size engine the Chrysler 200 has, so first consult the owner’s manual to find out. This is important because Chrysler actually recommends two different weights, depending upon the engine: the 2.4-liter, 4-cylinder engine takes a 0W20 weight oil and the larger 3.6 V6 engine takes a 5W20 weight.
In terms of choosing a brand,
recommends MOPAR®, Penzoil, or Shell Helix API Certified, but if you’re choosing another brand, they say to check to make sure the oil meets Chrysler Material Standard MS-6395—look for these numbers: MS-6395.
A professional oil change for your son’s 2015 Chrysler 200 should run you around $100 to $125. If you’re changing the oil and filter yourself, you’ll want to purchase 5.5 quarts if it is the 2.4-liter engine and 5.9 if it is the 3.6-liter engine.
Tell your son to be sure to regularly change his 2015 Chrysler 200’s oil at least twice a year or every 7,500 to 10,000 miles if he is using synthetic oil and every 3,000 to 5,000 miles if he is using conventional oil.
And here’s to a very happy birthday for your son!
It’s important to know what type of oil your 2015 Chrysler 200 takes because the engine will stop running without regular changes. While most drivers know about routine oil changes, they may compare
car insurance
rates as a part of their car-care routine.
Comparing rates may seem time-consuming, but
can make the process easier than getting an oil change!
