How Often to Change 2010 Jeep Patriot Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2010 Jeep Patriot? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 2010 Patriot’s oil should be changed according to Jeep’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Patriot in the above table. Your Patriot may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change 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, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Jeep Patriot. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Jeep Patriot?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Jeep Patriot. Jeep has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2010 Jeep Patriot vehicles. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your Patriot's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2010 Jeep Patriot Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Jeep Patriot? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Jeep Patriot engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Jeep Patriot oil at home? 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 professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Jeep Patriot 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
