The oil filter type for a 2016 Jeep Patriot is a screw-on canister with a size of 22 inches by 1.5 inches. A surefire way to make sure you buy the right filter is to drive to an auto parts store, remove the filter, and hand it to the clerk. This will ensure you always get the right size.
However, buying the right oil filter for a 2016 Jeep Patriot also depends on your needs and budget. Oil filters are generally inexpensive, ranging from about $5 to $20. There are a few factors that determine how effective the filter will be:
  • Capture efficiency, or how many particles the oil filter removes
  • Dirt-holding capacity
  • Design and fabrication material
  • Longevity in terms of miles
If you don’t want to dive into that too much over a part that’s less than $20, just think of it this way:
  • $5 to $10 oil filters will take you between 5,000 and 10,000 miles and are ideal for everyday driving.
  • $10 to $20 oil filters will give you between 10,000 and 20,000 miles, but have improved capture efficiency ideal for off-roading
Some of the top brands include FRAM, STP, MOPAR (which is the same as the original), and ACDelco.
