2011 Compass

First of all great site and awesomeness all around.
I have a 2011 Jeep Compass and need to do a complete tuneup.
Here are my questions that I need help with:
What type of spark plugs and brand?
Should I do transmission oil change (69,000 automatic cvt)?
Gas filter brand?
I've always used reg oil, should I switch to synthetic?
What other advice can I get as far as maintenance?
Thanks in advance for your help

If your Compass is driven normally, generally most CVT transmission oil doesn't need to be changed until 100K miles, so you're still good. Not sure about everything else.

That says nearly nothing about what you have and location makes a difference. Hence it depends, on a lot. Filling in a detailed signature for future posts will automatically take care of that if you have the time.

What I can say is"
- Spark Plug stick the the same number specified by Jeep, typically on the engine spec sticker under the hood and usually an NGK brand
- synthetic recommended for cold winter locations (easier starting and better all round protection), Yes Very hot summer weather its a big plus as well especially if you tow even a little.
- gas filter leave alone if not having trouble (Mopar if needed one day)
- air filter depending on millage but if you've not changed it then you're over due.

Oil grade is listed in the owners manual and usually marked on the filler caps for default grade EG 5W20 for most vehicles these days. Quaker State, Penzoil, Castrol are all excellent candidates for Synthetic Oil. DON'T use any High Millage oil !!! Ever they will create problems.

Some bug with the website today. I verified my signature is active but its not showing up as it should here automatically.

Another vote for NGK plugs. For the transmission oil change, check your manual for the recommended interval.
