Jeep recommends having your 2018 Jeep Wrangler’s motor oil changed at regular 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 engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Jeep recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, 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. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2018 Jeep Wrangler Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Jeep Wrangler? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine 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.
  • Can I change my 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly 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. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
