Changing your vehicle’s motor oil on a regular basis is an easy way to keep your engine running in good health—but it can also increase your annual vehicle-related expenses. That’s why learning to perform basic maintenance tasks yourself, such as changing your oil or differential fluid, is so important.
But before you can actually go about changing your oil, you’ll need to know how much is required to fill the reservoir. Fortunately,

2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee engine oil capacity

If you want to avoid under- or overfilling your 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee’s oil reservoir, you’ll need to know your vehicle’s total oil capacity. 
A 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.6L engine requires exactly 6 quarts, or roughly 5.7 liters, of motor oil to adequately fill the tank.
Now, it’s important that you don’t confuse this number with your engine’s displacement, or that space occupied by the engine cylinders—both measurements deal with your engine, but they are not interchangeable.

What kind of oil does the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee need?

A 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee uses full-synthetic motor oil with a 0W-20 rating. This first number, the “0,” indicates the oil’s winter rating and tells us what the viscosity is like in extremely cold temperatures—the lower the number, the lower the viscosity.
The second number, the “20,” tells us how thin the oil is once the engine has come up to its normal operating temperature of 212°F or higher. Oils rated at a “20” will still be thin even when heated to these high temps.

How often to change the oil on a 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee

As per factory recommendations, you should be changing your 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee’s motor oil once every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, which amounts to roughly twice per year. You may, however, need to change your Jeep’s oil more frequently if you regularly drive on dirt roads or take your

Additionally, you ought to be checking your oil once or twice a month before you reach the advised intervals to reduce the possibility of unintentionally damaging your engine.
Here are some signs that you may need to change your oil sooner rather than later:

How to change your oil and oil filter

If you’re going to change your oil and filter at home, you’ll need the following: an oil drain pan, a socket wrench, and a filter wrench. Of course, you'll also require five quarts of full-synthetic 0W-20 motor oil and a new filter.
After gathering the required equipment, turn on your car and let it run for a few minutes until the engine reaches normal operating temperature. This should only take 4-5 minutes under normal circumstances.
As soon as the engine reaches the correct temperature, turn it off,
open the hood
, and do the following:
  1. Locate the oil reservoir and take the cap off.
  2. Place the drain pan below the oil reservoir drain hole. Remove the drain bolt and washer with the socket wrench. Allow the oil to drain into the pan below.
  3. While you wait for the oil to drain completely, remove the old oil filter with the filter wrench.
  4. Install the new oil filter.
  5. Install a new washer and replace the bolt once the oil has completely drained. To find out the recommended tightness, consult your owner's manual.
  6. Put fresh oil in your engine and then tighten the oil cap.
After changing your oil, it’s a good idea to turn on your car and let your engine run for about 30 seconds before you check the oil level. This will give you a more accurate measurement, and you’ll be able to top it off if necessary.
Use a dipstick to verify that there is enough oil in the reservoir after adding new oil. If the level is good, start your car and let it run for a while. Once the engine has warmed up, look for leaks.
If you follow these instructions, the

on your Jeep’s dashboard should go out.
Pro Tip Never dump out the oil motor oil onto the ground or in the trash. Instead, put it in a sealed container and bring it to an auto parts store or recycling center.
