Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2006 Jeep Wrangler? 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.

Your 2006 Wrangler’s oil should be changed according to Jeep’s recommended oil change 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, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust.

Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

2006 Jeep Wrangler Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Jeep Wrangler engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Wrangler’s 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 oil on my own? 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Jeep exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
