When to Change 2018 Jeep Cherokee Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Jeep Cherokee’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 2018 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. 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, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle 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 long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

2018 Jeep Cherokee Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Jeep Cherokee motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Jeep Cherokee engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Jeep oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. 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. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
