Your 2017 Compass’s oil should be changed according to Jeep’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Compass in the above table.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2017 Jeep Compass

  • Should I check my Jeep Compass motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Compass’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Jeep Compass 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Jeep Compass spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
