When to Change 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2016 Grand Cherokee’s oil should be changed according to Jeep’s recommended oil change 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, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Jeep recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee

  • What can low oil do to my Jeep Grand Cherokee engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Jeep Grand Cherokee 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 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Jeep Grand Cherokee exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
