When to Change 1994 Jeep Cherokee Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1994 Jeep Cherokee? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Jeep recommends changing your 1994 Cherokee’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Cherokee may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Jeep recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Jeep Cherokee. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Jeep Cherokee Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1994 Jeep Cherokee motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Jeep has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 1994 Jeep Cherokee vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your Cherokee’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Cherokee by taking into account your driving preferences, and odometer.

1994 Jeep Cherokee Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Jeep Cherokee engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Jeep Cherokee engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Jeep oil on my own? 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 changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Jeep exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
