How Often Should I Service My Jeep Cherokee?

As a car owner, you probably know that your car needs to have its oil changed regularly to avoid engine problems. But there are other services that your Jeep Cherokee needs as well to perform at its best. The optimal Jeep Cherokee maintenance schedule is located in your vehicle owner's manual. The owner's manual outlines the recommended mileage and services based on your Cherokee trim level and model year. It's essential to keep up with these Jeep Cherokee service intervals to avoid potentially more costly repairs and vehicle damage later on.

20,000-Mile Service

The 20,000-mile mark is the first service interval for the Jeep Cherokee. If your Cherokee is due for an oil change and tire rotation, which are generally performed about every 5,000 miles, it will have those services performed at 20,000 miles. A certified Jeep technician will also inspect your car's CV and universal joints, along with the braking system, which includes the parking brake and the brake linings. The suspension system will be looked at for signs of problems with the tie rod ends, front suspension system, and boot seals. The air filter in the Jeep's cabin may be replaced as well.

30,000-Mile Service

At 30,000 miles, your Jeep will probably have its oil changed again, and its tires rotated. The air filter in the engine will be checked and replaced if it is dirty. Otherwise, clean air won't be able to reach the engine, which will, in turn, reduce its performance.

60,000-Mile Service

The 60,000-mile service consists primarily of replacing the spark plugs. If your Jeep has a 2.0L engine, the spark plugs are based on mileage rather than year. The Jeep's battery may be checked at 60,000 miles as well.

100,000-Mile Service

When your Jeep reaches 100,000 miles, it will have more services performed. Your car will have its spark plugs replaced if you have a particular engine type, including a 2.4L and a 3.2L engine. Spark plugs in both engines are changed according to mileage rather than year. If the PCV valve has not been replaced, it will be inspected at this point and replaced if necessary. The engine coolant fluid will also be flushed and replaced between 100,000 and 150,000 miles.
