When Should I Change My Oil?

To figure out how often you need to change your oil, consider the specifics of your engine and what kind of motor oil is your engine prefers. Receiving an oil change on a regular basis is incredibly important, since motor oil is responsible for reducing engine friction and heat, two factors that can lead to premature damage.  

On average, your engine’s oil should be changed every 5,000 miles, but we highly recommend having your engine inspected by one of our Jeep service technicians to find out exactly how long you can wait. Motor oil is an effective lubricant, but over time, grime can build up and harm this essential fluid. Oil changes swap out the grimy oil for a fresh batch, in turn giving your engine more optimal lubrication. Changing your motor oil can also dramatically boost your engine’s performance and prolong its lifespan.
