2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Jeep Grand Cherokee? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Jeep Grand Cherokee engine failure. 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? 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. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
