When to Change 2009 Jeep Wrangler Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Jeep Wrangler’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about 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 changing your 2009 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 engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My 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 specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2009 Jeep Wrangler vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your Wrangler's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other 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, weather and road conditions,

2009 Jeep Wrangler Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Jeep Wrangler motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Jeep Wrangler engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Jeep Wrangler oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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 Wrangler spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. 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.
