How Often to Change 2011 Jeep Wrangler Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Jeep Wrangler’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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.

Your 2011 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 knock knock knock coming from the engine, 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 terrain, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. 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 Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Jeep Wrangler?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2011 Jeep Wrangler motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Jeep has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2011 Wrangler. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your Wrangler’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire 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.

2011 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, these parts can grind together, 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. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Jeep Wrangler spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. 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, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
