The Question Man

Just get my Jeep fellas and ladies.
The best way for me to learn is to ask questions!!

Best oil and filter for Jeep Cherokee 3.7l engine?
Best Spark plugs, and gap?
Any other useful information!


p.s. Im coming from a heavily modified 2004 Grand Prix Comp G, So I am mechanically incline, but I know nothing about jeeps!
Thanks,
Kray

Buy an extended warranty if you haven't already and make sure you have a backup vehicle.

Thanks for the congrats, found the search link useful after I posted. I was pushing more towards everyone's preference on oil I suppose.
Is there major issues with the WK? I don't have a backup vehicle...please explain lol?

i bought mine with 57k and switched to full synthetic with 5k between oil changes.

also, look into a fumoto drain valve. if you do your own maintenance, it will make your life a lot easier and much less messy
