How Often to Get 1999 Jeep Wrangler Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Jeep Wrangler’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.

Your 1999 Wrangler’s oil should be changed according to Jeep’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Jeep-recommended oil change intervals, your Wrangler may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of 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 areas, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Jeep Wrangler. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 1999 Jeep Wrangler?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Jeep Wrangler. Jeep has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 1999 Wrangler. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your Wrangler’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Wrangler by considering your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1999 Jeep Wrangler Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Jeep Wrangler engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Jeep Wrangler engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Jeep Wrangler oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Jeep exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
