  1. Trigger’s First Post Delivery Oil Change

    SRT Hellcat Maintenance
    First, thank you all! I was way more educated than on any other car thanks to this forum and thus more confident! I got to hang out with the Viper Tech and he gave me the full educational process. He even pointed out how uneducated techs break the oil cooler so I read him excerpts from this...
  2. 500 Mile Maintenance

    SRT Hellcat Maintenance
    I just broke the 500 mile mark on my '18 Challenger Hellcat auto. Is there any maintenance I need to take care of now? I've read some people suggest getting an oil change now, then again at 1500, and finally at 3000 before going to the routine. Should I go to the dealership or just get it done...

  6. Oil life percent

    SRT Hellcat Maintenance
    I'm curious if any of you know what this is based on. I've read some places that it takes into account how hard the car is being driven whereas others are saying that it's simply based on mileage. How is the oil life percentage calculated?
  7. Access to oil cooler plug?

    SRT Hellcat Maintenance
    I have read the threads pertaining to oil changes, the access panels that must be removed and the drain plug on the oil cooler. My question is this, on a Challenger, can you reach (meaning get your hand on) the oil cooler plug without removing the panels? Can you reach in through the front or...
