Dont know for sure how true this is but ive always used 10w30 in them.sometimes it will tell you under the hood on the sticker with the info or your nearest oil change station has the capability to look up what the manufacturer calls for.I think all older chryslers ran 10w30 though

The weight of engine oil is dependant on the climate you are in. When you go to the parts store or where ever you get your oil, read the back of the oil container and it will tell you the temperature variations for that grade of oil. For colder climates you will need a thinner oil or lighter weight, and for hotter climates you will need a thicker oil or heavier weight. The higher the number ie... 30, 40, 50, the thicker the oil, the lower the number the thinner it is.
Some manufacturers put the grade on the fill cap or the dipstick.

What grade oil does 2004 jeep grand cherokee special edition take


Most likely 5W-30. The W is for winter. The numbers tell summer and winter. A quart of this oil will act like 5 weight (very thin) in the winter and 30 weight in the summer (thicker). Let's not go in to how that is done.
If you live up north, a 5W-20 would do well also. Down south 10W-30 is often used.

I have a 96 jeep cherokee 4.0 sport. whenever i am driving steep grades at a constant 3500 rpm, i start blowing oil from somewhere. it dosent leak any other time. the rear main seal seems fine. what could...


At an Idle your 4.0 creates a vacuum between the throttle body and the intake valves. As you need more throttle less vacuum is created. The PCV ( positive crank case vent) works off this vacuum. At the back of the valve cover there is a vacuum line that goes to the intake manifold. This line can become clogged. An engine produces "blow by". If you were to take oil cap off you might see it at an idle. Check the air filter. there is a line from the valve cover that leads to the airbox. this is where the "blow by" goes when pcv line is clogged. Part 1 the problem...... part 2 the fix.
