Your Guide to 1989 Jeep Cherokee Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Jeep Cherokee, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your Cherokee could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get Cherokee maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1989 Jeep Cherokee!

Jeep knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Cherokee running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1989 Jeep Cherokee problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Jeep Cherokee

Bring your 1989 Jeep Cherokee to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with 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 Cherokee’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1989 Jeep Cherokee? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Jeep Cherokee 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 Cherokee stranded. Your Jeep Cherokee 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 prevent premature wear on your 1989 Jeep Cherokee engine. See Jeep's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1989 Cherokee in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1989 Jeep Cherokee.

Routine upkeep for your Jeep Cherokee suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Jeep Cherokee 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 Jeep Cherokee's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Jeep Cherokee services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Jeep Cherokee engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is your Jeep Cherokee radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it.

  • When should I have Jeep Cherokee alignment checked? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 1989 Cherokee is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Jeep Cherokee? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Jeep Cherokee? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
