Jeep Maintenance

Jeep Oil Change at Hobart Jeep

At Hobart Jeep, we believe the ongoing maintenance of your oil and oil filter is imperative to help keep your vehicle performing efficiently, year after year. To ensure proper engine lubrication, the engine oil must be maintained at the correct level.

Oil filters are responsible for maintaining engine oil purity and slowing down engine wear. Regular maintenance will ensure your Jeep functions at maximum efficiency and performance.

Why Do I Need The Right Engine Oil?

Other than keeping your engine running, oil has a number of other functions that help improve the performance and extend the longevity of your vehicle.

  • Friction Reduction: Oil lubricates your engine ensuring that it functions smoothly, and minimal energy is lost to friction which reduces wear and tear and helps your engine last longer.
  • Engine Cleaning: As motor oil circulates through your engine, it collects dust and debris and deposits them in the engine oil filter, keeping them away from engine parts.
  • Rust and Corrosion Prevention: Oxidisation (rust) weakens and wears down engine parts. Motor oils have additives that prevent the build-up or rust and corrosion, helping your engine last longer.
  • Heat Reduction: When your engine gets too hot, it can cause the machinery to malfunction. Engine oil helps the heat dissipate to cooler parts of the engine, helping to prevent overheating.
  • Weather Tolerance: Some oils are optimized for extreme weather conditions and can ensure that the engine starts up in the cold and reduces volume loss to burn-off in the heat.
  • Improved Performance: Motor oil helps the engine run smoothly which reduces energy consumption and improves energy transfer, so you get more power when you need it.

  • Q How do I tell if my car is leaking?

    Check your oil dipstick regularly to see if your vehicle is leaking oil. Worn out parts can leak oil and you may notice a burnt oil smell or blue smoke coming from your tailpipe when driving.

  • Q How often should I change my oil?

    Check your owner’s manual to see the recommended schedule for your vehicle. Most manufacturers recommend changing the oil after 8,000 kms. This will vary depending on the frequency and duration of your driving trips. Synthetic oils will usually need to be changed less often.

    If your car is leaking or there is a more severe problem and you don’t have the experience/equipment to address it yourself, bring it in to a Jeep service centre where our highly trained specialists will be able to effectively diagnose and fix the issue.
