How Often to Change 2016 Jeep Renegade Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Jeep Renegade’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. 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.”

Jeep recommends having your 2016 Jeep Renegade’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Renegade in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Renegade may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Jeep if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, 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 Renegade. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Jeep Renegade Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2016 Jeep Renegade motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Jeep has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 2016 Jeep Renegade vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your Renegade’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2016 Jeep Renegade Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Jeep Renegade motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Jeep Renegade engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Jeep Renegade 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 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 Renegade spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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 the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
