How Often to Get 2017 Jeep Wrangler Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Jeep Wrangler’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Jeep recommends having your 2017 Jeep Wrangler’s motor oil changed at regular 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 knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess 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, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. 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.

2017 Jeep Wrangler Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Jeep Wrangler motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Jeep Wrangler engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • 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 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 help your car perform 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. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
