Jeep recommends having your 2009 Jeep Grand Cherokee’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Jeep-recommended oil change intervals, your Grand Cherokee may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2009 Jeep Grand Cherokee

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Jeep Grand Cherokee? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Grand Cherokee’s 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 engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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? 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, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
