To keep your Jeep Renegade BU running at its optimal performance, regular servicing is required.
To keep your Jeep Renegade BU running at its optimal performance, regular servicing is required. A big part of proper servicing is maintaining your vehicle’s fluids, though keeping track of the various fluid types required is only half of the battle. Understanding the capacity of each fluid tank is equally imperative, so that you can prevent your vehicle from ever falling short on coolant, engine oil or transmission and brake fluid, among others. When your Renegade BU runs low on engine oil, for example, the engine parts that work together become stiff and may overheat, which is bad news for any car owner. Similar or even worse consequences are possible when a car lacks the sufficient amount of brake fluid; without it, you risk losing the ability to bring your car to a halt quickly and efficiently. A lack of brake fluid renders the individual components of your Renegade BU’s braking system ineffective and susceptible to not being able to withstand the extreme heat it produces. Clearly, the presence of extreme heat is a common component to the inner workings of a vehicle, which explains the importance of regularly checking your coolant levels. Coolant, which is a blend of antifreeze and water, runs through the vehicle’s engine, absorbing heat and consequently allowing the engine to function properly.
Differences in the type of fluids and the capacity of each are determined by various aspects of your vehicle, such as the size and type of engine, but can also be dependent on the continent in which your car was manufactured. For example, the engine oil type required for a 1.4L engine in the U.S. model is not the same oil type required for the European model. Both models, however, have the same capacity specifications for the engine oil tank at 4 quarts or 3.8 liters. Coolant fluid types and capacities vary based on your Renegade BU’s engine type; for example, diesel engines require an alternative coolant formula than regular engines, and all engine types have differing coolant capacities. The chart below lists the fluid types required and fluid capacities handled by the various Jeep Renegade BU models.
