How Often to Change 2006 Jeep Commander Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2006 Jeep Commander? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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 2006 Commander’s oil should be changed according to Jeep’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Commander in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Commander may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of 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 at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Jeep Commander. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Jeep Commander Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2006 Jeep Commander motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Jeep has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2006 Commander. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your Commander's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Commander by considering your driving style, and odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2006 Jeep Commander

  • What can low oil do to my Jeep Commander engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Commander’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 Commander 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. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Jeep Commander 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 the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
