How Often to Change 2017 Jeep Cherokee Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Jeep Cherokee’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.”

Your 2017 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. Outside of Jeep-recommended oil change intervals, your Cherokee may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Jeep if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. 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’s the Right Type of Oil for 2017 Jeep Cherokee?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Jeep Cherokee. Jeep has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2017 Cherokee. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your Cherokee's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Cherokee by considering your driving preferences, weather and road conditions,

2017 Jeep Cherokee Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Jeep Cherokee engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Cherokee’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Jeep Cherokee oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Jeep Cherokee exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
