When to Change 2008 Jeep Wrangler Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Jeep Wrangler’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Jeep recommends changing your 2008 Wrangler’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Wrangler may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of 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, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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 Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Jeep Wrangler?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2008 Jeep Wrangler motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Jeep has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2008 Wrangler. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your Wrangler’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2008 Jeep Wrangler Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Jeep Wrangler motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Wrangler’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Jeep Wrangler 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Jeep Wrangler 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, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
