Jeep recommends having your 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Grand Cherokee may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Jeep Grand Cherokee. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Oil Change Questions

  • 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 Jeep Grand Cherokee 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 oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. 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 Grand Cherokee 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. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
