Maintenance for Your 1984 Jeep Cherokee

How often should I service my 1984 Jeep Cherokee?

Here’s Why 1984 Jeep Cherokee Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Jeep Cherokee, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your Cherokee has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Cherokee, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1984 Jeep Cherokee!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Jeep, 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 fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Cherokee running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1984 Jeep Cherokee problems later.

Overview of Essential Jeep Cherokee Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1984 Jeep Cherokee and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Cherokee. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1984 Jeep Cherokee? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Jeep Cherokee battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Jeep Cherokee won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 1984 Jeep Cherokee's engine run smoother. To learn how often Jeep recommends you have the oil changed in your 1984 Cherokee, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1984 Jeep Cherokee.

Maintaining your Jeep Cherokee 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. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Jeep Cherokee steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Jeep Cherokee's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Jeep Cherokee services, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Jeep Cherokee? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When does my Jeep Cherokee need high mileage oil? If your Jeep Cherokee has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can Jeep dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Jeep Cherokee in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
