A Note on Jeep Cherokee Oil Changes

Under normal operating conditions, you won’t need to remember your oil change intervals in the Jeep Cherokee. This is because it may be equipped with an automatic oil change indicator system.

2021 Jeep Cherokee RedThe system will remind you when the Jeep Cherokee needs oil changes (and tire rotations at the same interval). It takes many different operating conditions into account, including:

  • Frequent short trips
  • Trailer tow
  • Extreme hot or cold temperatures

If you operate your Cherokee in severe conditions—a label that includes dusty or off-road environments or predominantly idling—you should change your car’s engine oil at 4,000 miles or 350 hours of engine run time.


Every 20,000 Miles or Two Years

At 20,000 miles or two years, whichever comes first, you should have the cabin air filter in your Jeep Cherokee replaced. This will ensure that the air that circulates through the cabin is fresh and clean for miles to come.

You’ll also want to clean and lube the sunroof tracks (if so equipped) and inspect the brake linings and parking brake function.

Every 30,000 Miles or Three Years

At this interval, replace your car’s engine air cleaner filter. This allows your SUV’s engine to get clean air, which is crucial for the combustion process. The air filter prevents contaminants like dirt and dust from entering the engine and causing damage.

Every 60,000 Miles or Six Years

At 60,000 miles or six years, it’s time to replace the spark plugs if your Cherokee runs on the 2.0L engine.

As their name implies, spark plugs provide the essential “spark” your engine needs to start the combustion process. They need replacing every so often, so your SUV continues to reliably start.

Every 100,000 Miles or 10 Years

Congrats on reaching the 100,000-mile or 10-year mark! You’ve come a long way with your Jeep Cherokee, and you can celebrate with another quick service visit.

At this point, you should flush and replace the engine coolant. This fluid will keep your Cherokee’s engine from overheating while running. And, if your Cherokee uses the 2.4L or 3.2L engine, this is the interval where you’ll want to swap out the spark plugs.
