As Indicated by Oil Change Alert System

Jeep Cherokee Maintenance Schedule

Air Filter:

Every 30,000-miles

Brake Fluid & CV Joint:

Every 20,000-miles

Replace at 100,000-miles

Coolant:

Replace at 10 years or 150,000-miles

Oil, Washer Fluid & Tire Pressure:

Check at every fuel stop


When your Cherokee's oil change indicator  chimes and flashes an Oil Change Due message, there's a series of maintenance items you'll want to complete. As you might expect, one of them is an oil and filter change to help keep the metal parts in your  engine lubricated and working well. Other service items at this point include:

  1. Battery inspection
  2. Brake inspection (pads, shoes, rotors, drums, and hoses)
  3. Tire rotation

You should also have your engine cooling and exhaust systems inspected to make sure these systems are operating optimally. 

Although there's no set interval for the above service items, your oil change message can illuminate as early as 3,500 miles and the oil should be changed before it has reached 10,000 miles or 12 months of usage.

If you think you need them performed even earlier, don't hesitate to schedule a service appointment.

Jeep Service Schedule: Every 2 Years or 20,000 Miles

When your Jeep Cherokee has been on the road for two years or 20,000 miles (whichever comes first), you can perform a few additional inspections. 

These are a little more in-depth to help keep you safe behind the wheel. They include:

  • Braking linings/parking brake inspection
  • CV joint inspection
  • Front suspension inspection

Additional Jeep Cherokee Maintenance Services

You can replace your cabin air filter at this interval to keep air circulating through your ride fresh and clean.

Most of the routine Jeep Cherokee maintenance is covered above, but there are a couple more items that will need occasional servicing. 

  1. Every three years or 30,000 miles, you should replace the engine air cleaner filter to keep dirt, dust, and debris away from your engine's cylinders.

  2. At 100,000 miles, you'll need to replace your spark plugs if you have the 2.4L or 3.2L engine inside your 2019 Cherokee. If you have a trim level with the 2.0L engine, the spark plugs will need to be changed at 60,000 miles.

  3. After 10 years or 150,000 miles, flush and replace your engine coolant to rid your hoses and pumps of dirty or sludgy fluid.

Routine Checks You Can Do

Most routine maintenance that your Jeep needs will require a professional technician to perform, but there are also inspections you can do yourself to help stay aware of your car's condition and its various components.

At every fuel stop, you should check:

  • Engine oil level
  • Windshield washer fluid level
  • Tire pressure

You'll also want to take a look at the condition of the tires when checking the tire pressure to see if there's an unusual or uneven wear. 

You can also examine the fluid levels of the coolant reservoir and brake master cylinder to see if they need to be filled.

Lastly, you'll want to make sure all the lights inside and outside of your Cherokee are properly working. If you notice any of these components need to be serviced, our technicians will be happy to help keep your 2019 Jeep Cherokee in great condition.

Jeep Cherokee Service Warning Signs

On top of the parts you should get in the habit of checking each time you're at the gas station refueling, there are other parts of the car you can regularly inspect the condition of. 

When you do look at these parts, here are some signs that tell you they need to be serviced and/or replaced.

Accessory Belt

Cracking, groove jumping, noise, or slip

Wiper Blades

Uneven edges, hardening, cracking, deformation

Engine Coolant

Dirty or contains sediment

If you notice any of these warning signs, you should have your car serviced as soon as possible.

Preventing Corrosion

Most of what we covered has involved maintenance to systems that aren't visibly seen. However, when it comes to the body of your car, it's important to maintain the exterior appearance not just for aesthetics but to prevent your car from loosing its protective coatings.

Many things can cause corrosion on your vehicle, but the most common sources of the wear are:

  • Road salt, dirt, and moisture accumulation
  • Stone and gravel impact
  • Insects, tree sap, and tar
  • Pollutants

To help protect your Jeep Cherokee from corrosion, regularly cleaning the body and under-body is key. 

Washing your car yourself or having it washed by a professional will rinse away that dirt and foreign material.

Importance of Scheduling Regular Jeep Cherokee Maintenance

There are many moving parts within your vehicle that require you to regularly inspect their condition and replace worn parts to ensure your car continues to run at its best ability, keep you safe, and avoids more serious damage.

Components and different systems may malfunction if you don't regularly maintain your Jeep Cherokee, which could result in more complex repairs needing to be performed.

Having your car serviced for an oil change and brake pads replacement when it's needed will allow your 2019 Cherokee to smoothly handle the roads. 

It also allows your car to perform at its best. Having enough tread on your tires and having them properly inflated will not only keep you in control with great traction and stability but will also help you save on gas by giving you better fuel economy.
