Oil change! How and when and what

Im a new Jeep Renegade owner and not a real mechanic but I like to learn and started doing a few things myself on my previous car and now with the Jeep.

So today I got everything to make the 1st oil change and going through the process I got a questions poping into my mind.. Im not sure if the subject has discussed before but after a quick search I couldnt find much about it.

1-Do you change the oil filter each and everytime? I read some do and some dont so Im a little lost.

2-Is there a maintenance plan somewhere for the Renegade. What I mean is after x milage you also need to check this, or replace that, etc , etc.

3-Should you use only mopar oil filters?

Might add more questions later all inputs appreciated

Welcome to the forum

For 1 Always always always change the filter. And always always always make sure the rubber gasket comes off when you take off the old filter. Take some new oil and smear it around the new filters gasket.

2 look in the manual i forget what page, but it has the Manufacturer’s maintenance plan near the back.

3 that is up to you. Just 1 be sure its the right size and 2 its not one of those cheapy fram filters. It should cost you 3-7 bucks. Just do a little research on filters.
