How Often to Get 2011 Jeep Compass Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2011 Jeep Compass? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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 2011 Compass’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Jeep-recommended oil change intervals, your Compass may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, 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, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Jeep Compass. 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.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Jeep Compass?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2011 Jeep Compass motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Jeep has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2011 Compass. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your Compass’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Compass by taking into account your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2011 Jeep Compass Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Jeep Compass? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Jeep Compass engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Jeep Compass oil at home? 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 Compass exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
