Jeep recommends having your 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Grand Cherokee may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, 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, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee

  • Should I check my Jeep Grand Cherokee motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Jeep Grand Cherokee engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Jeep oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Jeep exhaust smoke gray 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 old cylinder walls.
