How Often to Get 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Jeep recommends having your 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Wrangler JK may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Jeep if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Jeep Wrangler JK. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Jeep Wrangler JK?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Jeep Wrangler JK. Jeep has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2018 Wrangler JK. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Wrangler JK’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Wrangler JK by taking into account your driving style, and odometer.

2018 Jeep Wrangler JK Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Jeep Wrangler JK engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Jeep Wrangler JK engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Jeep Wrangler JK oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Jeep Wrangler JK spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
