Oil Change Q&A for Your 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

  • What can low oil do to my Jeep Grand Cherokee engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, 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.
  • How hard is it to change Jeep Grand Cherokee oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Jeep Grand Cherokee spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
