When to Change 2015 Jeep Cherokee Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2015 Jeep Cherokee? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2015 Cherokee’s oil should be changed according to Jeep’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Cherokee may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Jeep recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Jeep Cherokee?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2015 Jeep Cherokee motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Jeep has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2015 Jeep Cherokee vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your Cherokee's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving preferences, and mileage.

2015 Jeep Cherokee Oil Change Q&A

  • 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 parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Cherokee’s 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 Cherokee oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Jeep Cherokee spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
