How Often to Change 2002 Jeep Wrangler Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Jeep Wrangler’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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.

Jeep recommends having your 2002 Jeep Wrangler’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Wrangler 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 an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Jeep recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Jeep Wrangler. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2002 Jeep Wrangler

  • What can low oil do to my Jeep Wrangler engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these 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 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Jeep Wrangler exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of 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 old cylinder walls.
