An "oil change required" message will show on the dash when it's needed.

Typically every 6k - 7k miles depending on your driving habits.

Using Mobile1 0w20, I change my oil regularly, every 5000 miles.
Old habit. @OBXMan is correct; you should receive an indicator when Jeep believes that it is time for an oil change.

The car will tell you if after the last oil change it was reset, if not you wont get a reminder.


I'm like you i like to change every 7500 with a 100% syn oil like M1 or amsoil

I had the dealer forget to reset mine. It just reminds you ALL THE TIME that you still haven't changed your oil, even if you in fact DID change the oil. If it ever gives up, I didn't reach that point prior to getting it actually reset.

How does the car "know" it has to be changed? Is it like a simple millage milestone like xx miles or is there some kind of sensor checking the oil thinckness or whatever?

I changed the oil in my jeep a couple weeks ago and I hadnt reset anything. The message showed up this morning so I was wondering is the oil already bad, that cant be...

For me, 2016 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk... with remote start.

DO NOT put your foot on the brake or the jeep will start. you do not want the jeep to start.

Touch the start button and the instrument panel will come to life.
Fully press the gas pedal 3 times within 5 seconds (try not to speed pump the pedal).

Touch the start button to turn off the jeep.

Start the Jeep.

If you have a "Key" start jeep.

Turn the key to run, the instrument panel will come to life, don't start the jeep.

Fully press the gas pedal 3 times within 5 seconds (try not to speed pump the pedal).

Turn to the off position.

Start the Jeep.

If you had a 'Change Oil' notification, it should be off.
If you did not have a 'Change Oil' notification, it will be reset (the counter will start over).

It doesn't monitor the oil, it just keeps some tally of mystery stats. Nobody knows what. I've gotten it triggering between 6700 miles and 5800 miles, and my usage is not that variable. We'll see if this most recent one comes up any different, as my commute has moved and my usage patterns should be different with regards to wear and tear. I'd expect it to drop given there's a lot more merging and other stuff that requires accelerating from 0-50+ added on to my previous crawl of a commute. Stuff's also running cooler after the fan recall which might add some oil life.

Did you get it changed at 5k or the recomended mileage?

Since I bought mine used, and this vehicle doesn't have a "countdown to service" indicator like my other vehicles had, I had no idea when the indicator would light, but I knew when it went off. I was conveniently about 3-5 miles from my dealer when it lit and have 3 free oil changes, so I rolled right in. I typically roll 100-500 miles after the indicator light goes on as work doesn't allow me to stay right on schedule.

It appears it's set for every 10k, I'll know for sure next week or so as that milestone is coming up.

Funny thing is, they put a reminder sticker on my windshield set for 3,000 miles. Yeah....
