Jeep Liberty: Maintenance Schedule
The Scheduled Maintenance services listed in this manual must be done at the times or mileages specified to protect your vehicle warranty and ensure the best vehicle performance and reliability. More frequent maintenance may be needed for vehicles in severe operating conditions, such as dusty areas and very short trip driving. Inspection and service should also be done anytime a malfunction is suspected.
The oil change indicator system will remind you that it is time to take your vehicle in for scheduled maintenance.
On Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) equipped vehicles вЂњOil Change RequiredвЂќ will be displayed in the EVIC and a single chime will sound, indicating that an oil change is necessary.
On Non-EVIC equipped vehicles вЂњChange OilвЂќ will flash in the instrument cluster odometer and a single chime will sound, indicating that an oil change is necessary.
Based on engine operation conditions the oil change indicator message will illuminate, this means that service is required for your vehicle. Have your vehicle serviced as soon as possible, within the next 500 miles (805 km).
вЂў The oil change indicator message will not monitor the time since the last oil change. Change your vehicles oil if it has been six months since your last oil change even if the oil change indicator message is NOT illuminated.
вЂў Change your engine oil more often if you drive your vehicle off-road for an extended period of time.
вЂў Under no circumstances should oil change intervals exceed 8,000 miles (13 000 km) or six months, whichever comes first.
Your authorized dealer will reset the oil change indicator message after completing the scheduled oil change. If a scheduled oil change is performed by someone other than your authorized dealer, the message can be reset by referring to the steps described under вЂњElectronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC)/Oil Change RequiredвЂќ in вЂњUnderstanding Your Instrument PanelвЂќ or under вЂњInstrument Cluster Description/Odometer/Trip OdometerвЂќ in вЂњUnderstanding Your Instrument PanelвЂќ for further information.
