Oil Change Q&A for Your 1983 Jeep Scrambler

  • Should I check my Jeep Scrambler motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Jeep Scrambler engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Jeep Scrambler 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 professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Jeep Scrambler 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
