Changing the fluids in your vehicle helps maintain optimal performance, but how do you determine when a Jeep® oil change is necessary? When it comes to service, our dealership strives to provide exceptional care, whether it’s for regular maintenance or a minor repair. Let’s look at three signs you should schedule a Jeep oil change to help you determine when to visit our service center.
Loud or Excessive Engine Noise
If you hear a knocking sound coming from your engine, it could result from a lack of lubrication. The oil in your vehicle serves as a protective layer between engine parts, preventing any engine noise. Changing your oil reinforces this layer and prevents any damage to your engine.
If you drive often and find yourself racking up a decent number of miles, you should consider checking your oil. Although every model is different, your engine starts to wear down the more you drive, so you should try to schedule an oil change at least every three months or according to your manufacturer’s recommendation. Generally, older vehicles will need more frequent oil changes than newer vehicles.
Check Engine Light
Although this light will come on when your oil needs to be changed, you shouldn’t wait until it comes on to have your vehicle serviced. Waiting till the light comes on may save you some time, but neglecting to change your oil could cause damage to spread to other aspects of your vehicle. In addition, when you bring your vehicle to our service center, our technicians can recognize any other issues simultaneously.
