Jeep recommends changing your 2010 Grand Cherokee’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Grand Cherokee in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Grand Cherokee may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust.

Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Jeep Grand Cherokee. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

2010 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 runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Grand Cherokee’s engine to fail. 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 buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Jeep Grand Cherokee exhaust smoke grayish or blue? 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 damaged cylinder walls.
