When to Change 2015 Jeep Patriot Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2015 Jeep Patriot? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Jeep recommends having your 2015 Jeep Patriot’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Patriot in the above table. Outside of Jeep-recommended oil change intervals, your Patriot may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, 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. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Jeep Patriot Need?

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 most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2015 Patriot. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your Patriot’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Patriot by taking into account your driving preferences, and mileage.

2015 Jeep Patriot Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Jeep Patriot? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Jeep Patriot engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Jeep Patriot oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 Patriot exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
