Jeep Wrangler Oil Change

Wrangler Oil Change

The Jeep Wrangler name is synonymous with adventure. If you take your Wrangler off-roading in the KY countryside, the last thing you would want is the engine to go out midway through your ride. You can prevent this through routine oil changes. Keep reading to learn more about how to take care of your Wrangler’s engine.

Oil Change Intervals for 2022 Jeep Wrangler

The first step in your Jeep Wrangler’s engine maintenance is knowing when to come into the dealership for an oil change. The 2022 Jeep Wrangler’s Owner’s Manual recommends only using fully synthetic oil, which should be changed at a dealership every 7,500 – 10,000 miles. If you have an older model Wrangler that uses conventional oil, you should get your oil changed every 3,000 – 5,000 miles. If you want to make sure you’re coming in at the proper intervals, you can work out a service schedule with your service advisor at Dan Cummins Auto Group.

How to Check Jeep Wrangler’s Engine Oil Level

If you are unsure if you should come in for an oil change, you can check your motor oil level easily. All you have to do is park your Wrangler on a level surface, turn the engine off, and wait about five minutes for the engine to cool off. Then, you remove the dipstick, wipe it on a paper towel or rag, and re-insert it. When you remove it again, check the consistency/color of the oil and the oil level. If it is below the first notch or the wrong consistency, it is time for you to come into Dan Cummins Auto Group for an oil change. You should do this every two weeks, in addition to maintaining routine oil change intervals, to ensure your Wrangler’s engine stays at peak performance.

Oil Type for Jeep Wrangler

When you come in for an oil change at Dan Cummins Auto Group CDJR, your service advisor will likely ask which oil type you prefer to use. The answer depends on the age, trim, and mileage of your Wrangler. The 2022 Jeep Wrangler’s two engine types, and their corresponding recommended oil types, are:

  • 2.0L Engine – Mopar API Certified SAE 5W-30 Full Synthetic Engine Oil
  • 3.6L Engine – Mopar SAE 0W-20 Full Synthetic Engine Oil
  • 3.0L Diesel Engine – Mopar API Certified SAE 5W-40 Full Synthetic Engine Oil

Full synthetic, API-certified, Mopar engine oils are always recommended for the 2022 Wranglers.
If you have an older Wrangler or one with high mileage, you should consult with a service advisor at Dan Cummins Auto Group to find the best oil type for your engine.

2022 Jeep Wrangler Oil Capacity

The different Wrangler engine types have their own oil capacities. According to the 2022 Jeep Wrangler’s Owner’s Manual, the oil capacities are:

  • 2.0L Engine – 5 quarts
  • 3.6L Engine – 5 quarts
  • 3.0L Diesel Engine – 9 quarts

If you have an older or higher mileage engine, speak with one of our service advisors to find your Jeep’s recommended oil capacity.

Oil Type Comparison

The Jeep Wrangler’s Owner’s Manual always recommends using full synthetic oil. Synthetic oil is always the best choice because it is chemically engineered to work better in extreme high and low temperatures. It’s the best choice for most new and high-performance vehicles.
Synthetic blend oil is the second type. It’s a combination of conventional and synthetic oils, made to resist oxidation and work well in low temperatures.
The third type is conventional motor oil. It is best suited to simple engine designs and normal driving conditions.
The final type is high mileage motor oil. It is made for vehicles over 75,000 miles and helps condition oil seals to prevent leaks.
