Take care of your Ford Bronco and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Bronco.

Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1987 Ford Bronco!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Ford, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Bronco running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1987 Ford Bronco problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Ford Bronco Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1987 Ford Bronco for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Bronco’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1987 Ford Bronco. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Bronco may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Ford Bronco battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Bronco stranded. Your Ford Bronco could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1987 Ford Bronco running newer, longer. To learn how often Ford recommends you have the oil changed in your 1987 Bronco, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1987 Ford Bronco.

Maintaining your Ford Bronco steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Ford Bronco suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Ford Bronco's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Ford Bronco maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Ford Bronco’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your Ford Bronco radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 1987 Ford Bronco maintenance.

1987 Ford Bronco Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 1987 Ford Bronco. Get answers to common Ford Bronco maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Ford Bronco? You know your Ford Bronco better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When does my Ford Bronco need high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Ford Bronco engines.
  •  Why are my Ford dashboard lights on? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Ford Bronco to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
