Getting ready for my first oil change at 3000 miles and was wondering which is the preferred oil that most of you use? Dont really know if it matters but what do you guys like to use as it seems like you all have our hemis dialed in pdg!!:confused:

You really need to search the forum on this one. It's been debated quite a bit.

Most of us SRT-8 owners go w/ the factory recommendation of Mobil 1 0W-40. Kragen sells it cheaper than Napa and has/had a sale, $1 off per quart. Others scream for Royal Purple, etc etc. But I don't know of any others in an actual 0W-40 weight, synthetic.

Are you doing it yourself. You might want to have the dealer do the first one, or be prepared to spend a lot of time taking the filter off.

They are beyond tight from the factory. Many a member here have shredded theirs taking it off.

I let the dealer my first oil change a couple months ago. Good thing that Cerritos Dodge is so good at customer service that they sent me a free 1st oil change voucher almost 5 months after I bought the car.
