Your Grand Cherokee may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Jeep Grand Cherokee? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Grand Cherokee’s 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 Grand Cherokee 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Jeep Grand Cherokee exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
