How Often to Change 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Oil

Need more info about 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Jeep recommends changing your 2021 Grand Cherokee’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics 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 knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Jeep recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. 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 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Jeep Grand Cherokee? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, 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 Grand Cherokee oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly 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. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
