Jeep recommends having your 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. 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 see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Jeep Grand Cherokee. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2001 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, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Jeep Grand Cherokee engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Jeep oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Jeep Grand Cherokee spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. 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 old cylinder walls.
