Oil changes soon
 
I will be changing the oil in the parents Intrepid 3.5 H.O., WJ 4.7L H.O. as well as my WK 4.7 for the winter. In the spring there was a deal from advance auto parts (cant remember the price) but was a excellent deal for 5-6qts of mobil one on sale plus free mobil one filter. Anyone have a heads up on any good specials for the fall/winter on mobile one products at all from any retail outlets or what have you as of late?? Looking for some info! :D

Out of curiosity - do they have a SXT or R/T Intrepid? I used to have a 2001 R/T before I got my Jeep.

SXT, its a 2004. I bought two 5qt, 0-W30 for winter for 22 a piece at walmart. The freakin extra quarts were 6.20! My filter was 5 something per for a fram extra guard. Not too bad i guess. I need it soon anyways.

Walmart may still have $15 off 5 qts of Pennzoil Platinum synthetic. that makes it $5 plus a filter.

Fram is the worst filter you can buy. try a Wix, NAPA or MOPAR filter.

But i want to keep my filter in there for 5-6k miles. I have the extended guard one from fram that is supposed to last. Why would chrysler in particular make a good filter if they recommend an oil change every 3k, or anyone else for that matter.

I did not see this special on pennzoil prods but i like i said went with the mobil one 0W-30 advanced fuel economy... not for the economy but rather the 0W for the winter and those sub zero startups if when it gets that cold. Also returned the regular fram filters for the mopar ones as per suggestion by scottydog and others on the forum in the past. :) Should be doing the change within the nexxt week or two.
