2021 Jeep Cherokee Oil Change Service

When to Change 2021 Jeep Cherokee Engine Oil

Need more info about 2021 Jeep Cherokee oil changes? 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.”

Jeep recommends changing your 2021 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, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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 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’s the Right Type of Oil for 2021 Jeep Cherokee?

You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving habits, and mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2021 Jeep Cherokee

  • Should I check my Jeep Cherokee motor oil level? 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, 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. 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 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
