what kind of oil should be used for a 2006 dodge stratus?
A 2006 Dodge Stratus 2.7L call for 5 quarts of 5W-30 semi-synthetic oil. For maximum performance, 100% synthetic 0W-30 can also be used. Consumer reviews state the pros of the 2006 Dodge Stratus is the steering and handling. They list the cons as the acceleration, or lack thereof.
A number before the 'W' (weather) is the 'cold' viscosity rating of the oil. The number after the 'W' is the 'hot' viscosity rate. So a 5W40 oil is one that acts like a 5 rated single grade oil when cold, but does not thin any more than a 40 rated single grade oil when hot. The lower the 'winter' (W) number the easier the engine turns over when starting in colder climates.
In recent news, ICON has just reveled they are working on a 'new' 1965 Dodge pickup! The four door pickup is being rebuilt on a Dodge 3500 platform powered specially by a prepared 5.9 liter Cummins diesel engine from Banks Power putting out 975 lb-ft of torque.
