1984 Jeep CJ7 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Jeep CJ7? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Jeep CJ7 engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Jeep CJ7 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. 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 with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Jeep CJ7 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is 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.
