Jeep recommends changing your 1983 Cherokee’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Jeep-recommended oil change intervals, your Cherokee may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Jeep Cherokee. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1983 Jeep Cherokee

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Jeep Cherokee? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Jeep Cherokee engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Jeep Cherokee oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Jeep Cherokee spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
