Jeep recommends having your 2009 Jeep Patriot’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above.

2009 Jeep Patriot Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Jeep Patriot engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Patriot’s 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 Patriot oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
