Jeep recommends changing your 2018 Grand Cherokee’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table.

2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Jeep Grand Cherokee engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Jeep Grand Cherokee engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Jeep Grand Cherokee oil at home? 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 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
