Jeep recommends changing your 2003 Grand Cherokee’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Grand Cherokee 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 knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Jeep if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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.

2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee Oil Change Questions

  • 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, these parts can grind together, generate excess 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. 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 with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Jeep Grand Cherokee exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
