When to Change 2016 Jeep Patriot Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Jeep Patriot’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 2016 Jeep Patriot’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Patriot in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Patriot may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Jeep Patriot. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Jeep has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2016 Patriot. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine.

2016 Jeep Patriot Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Jeep Patriot engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Patriot’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Jeep Patriot oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Jeep Patriot exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
