Question about 2006 Dodge Magnum

1 Answer

Normal Maintenance I just got an 06 Magnum R/T. This is the first newer car I have ever had, so I would like to know how long before an oil change? Is it still 3000 miles? What type of oil, 10w30? Synthetic? What other normal maintenance should I be doing? Sorry if these are dumb questions! Have a good one, Rob

I would change the oil to a premium synthetic such as Mobil 1 or Castrol. The oil weight should be what your owner's manual recommends. If you do have the owner's manual normal maintenance should be listed, otherwise do a search on the Internet. Using a good synthetic oil allows you to change oil and filter less frequently, say 5 to 10K miles. I change mine once per year unless I've done lots of city, stop and go driving. Nice car, glad you want to take care of it!

On a 06 Chevy Impala 3.5 what do I need to change when the car shuts off and across the dash it says starting disabled service throttle and the oil light come on and it says low oil pressure engine


Newer cars use what is referred to as "Drive by Wire. Instead of a throttle cable that goes to the throttle body, there is a sensor on the gas pedal and another on the throttle body. The signal from the pedal is sent to the ECM, analyzed, and transmitted to the throttle body to perform the desired operation. If something in that chain breaks down, the car is disabled as a safety feature, so that you wouldn't have, say, a wide open throttle issue to deal with. That is what the "starting disabled, service throttle" means. As far as the oil light and low oil pressure indications, if the key is on, and the engine is not running, these are normal indications since there is no oil pressure in the engine when it is not running.

2006 BMW 325i - low oil level 5 different times. 12,500 miles, 21,290 miles 27,216 miles (dealer replaced head), 33,500 miles & 42,100 miles. Dealer claims nothing wrong with occasional low oil!! only...


There is a lot wrong with "low oil" and low oil is not normal in a low mileage healthy engine.

The dealer is fobbing you off in the hope you will go away.

If the oil is being changed at least every 5000 miles or so there should be minimum oil depletion between changes with only very minor top up needed. Some oil consumption is normal but it should be minimal.

If the oil level is dropping to a very low level in about 4000 - 5000 miles of normal motoring you have a significant problem. The oil is either leaking out or the engine is burning excessive oil or a combination. If there is no leak through faulty seals or by other means such as oil escaping into the cooling passages of the engine, then there is excessive burning.

These engines are known for excessive oil consumption because the problem is a common one in the 06, 05, 04 and previous year builds back to about 98/99. The dealers know all about this problem - as does BMW - and they will try to fob you off until the car is out of warranty because the fix is expensive.

From what you say the problem has not been fixed on your car. Document the oil loss and insist on your warranty rights because your engine is using excessive oil and this is NOT normal in a properly functioning motor with as few miles as yours has. Make it clear to the dealer that you are well aware that excessive oil consumption is a common problem in many of the 325 petrol engines and you want it fixed under warranty.

Then sell the car as these vehicles will cost you quite a bit in repairs once out of warranty and once you clock up around 60000 miles or more. If you have an auto you can expect major problems at about 65000 miles (later if you are lucky) and replacement of the transmission will be necessary. Once you notice any significant problem with the auto transmission it is on it's way out.

Maintenance screen


If your vehicle has a info button which it should, you would press the info button repeatedly until you reach the oil change, oil filter and tire rotation intervals. Once you reach the oil change you should be able to press enter and then toggle down until reset is highlighted and then press enter again. Same thing for the other maintenance intervals. I worked for a dealer for 10 years, but haven't seen one of those since 06. If you like you can email me directly and I will be happy to help you.

Noise at strart


The tapping, I think, from the limited information, is the Valves not getting the Oil due to low oil pressure. Once the engine warms up, and the Oil pump starts to flow the oil, the tapping stops. Many vehicles, do this. I would not be overly concerned about the tapping, but I would be concerned about the coolant leak. An easy way to see if you have an external leak is to go to a local parts store, and purchase a leak test kit, which usually is a dye, which can be seen with a blacklight. Take vehicle to repair facility and have a Carbon Block Test done
