Question about 2000 Dodge Caravan

How many quarts of oil are used in a 3.3 liter engine of a 2000 dodge caravan se

My sister has purchased a minivan. I offered to change her oil and I don't have an owners manual to look it up. I have also instructed here to go replace the transmission filter and fluid and seals. I will flush the radiator and I know about the pet **** as far as the correct way to remove it. I think we can wait until springtime to replace the wires and spark plugs. I just was unsure of how many quarts of oil I needed. Thank you in advance.

    Thanks for the advice and I usually put oil on the O ring of the filter and fill the filter with oil so thanks for the heads up. I know that it leaks transmission fluid only when it has set over night. Only a small amount and I have checked to see if it was low. I suggested that if she was to replace the seals of the transmission at 299999 miles it would be good idea to get the filter and fluid changed out on a machine to evacuate all of the old. I drove it. I don't think that has a problem I just wanted to prevent one in the future. Thanks mosthated357.

You wanna put 4 and ahalf in turn the key a couple half cranks then you should need to put the last half qt in as for the transmission filter most of the time you do not want to change them unless the transmission is acting up because that normally causes you more problems in the future unless it was done on a scheduled routine basis.

Will a 2000 3.3 liter dodge caravan engine interchange with a 2000 3 liter dodge caravan engine?


No they are two different engines. Swapping them would involve changing over many other components besides just the engines. Including mounts, harnesses, computers, etc.

It is normal to use over a quart of oil before oil change


My 1993 voyager is like that. It may burn some , it definitely leaks some , and it could be just sending some through the PCV valve. Oil leaks and burning oil causes pollution . If you can fix it with a new seal or a valve cover gasket it is easier than constantly checking your oil. Temperature, trailering, speed, outdoor temperature, and engine RPM all can be factors if you are losing oil. If your engine is a quart down, the engine oil consumption rate doubles or triples. In other words the lower the oil level the faster it disappears. High mile cars will drive for years as long as you add oil when it is needed (keep the oil level between the marks). Fix any obvious leaks. Then determine your oil change interval (3000 miles, 4000 miles, 5000 miles). I change between 4000 and 5000 miles. If i am a quart low at 3500 I add a quart. If I am a quart low at 4500 miles I just change the oil in the car. A good practice is to carry a quart of oil in your vehicle just in case you need it. It is far cheaper to add a quart when needed than to go to the dealer once to maybe fix a problem that they may not be able to find or fix. Older engines (even some newer ones) just use oil , especially in hotter climates. Fix the obvious and carry a quart.

How many quarts or oil do my 2000 dodge interpid take???


Most engines four cylinder and six cylinder are going to have a five quart oil pan. Put in four and a half quarts start the engine for a couple of minutes and shut it back off. Check the dipstick. Nine times out of ten you will need to put in the remaining one half of the fifth quart. Dodge recommends SAE 5W-30 oil in the 3.3-liter engine and SAE 10W-30 oil in the 3.5-liter engine. Selecting the proper oil for your engine will ensure that the components of your engine are protected.

that is not excessive oil consumption, 10,000 KM is about 6,400 miles, 1.5 Liters is about 1.1 quarts, this is excellent, my brand new Dodge Magnum uses more oil than this.

Dodge Caravan 2000, 3 l engine, 109000 km/ mechanical valve lifters that are out of adjustment


The next time you do an oil change, put a liter of tranny fluid in with the oil BEFORE you change it. Let it run for an hour or two.The tranny fluid will clean out the gunk that causes your lifters to stick.Now do your oil change. Do this each time you change your oil, only use a 1/2 liter each time. You will be amazed at the difference, I was.
