Here’s Why 1990 Jeep Cherokee Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Jeep Cherokee to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Cherokee. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Cherokee, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1990 Jeep Cherokee maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Jeep themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Cherokee's life, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 1990 Jeep Cherokee problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Jeep Cherokee

Bring your 1990 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 1990 Jeep Cherokee? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Jeep Cherokee battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. 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 even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1990 Jeep Cherokee running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1990 Cherokee. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1990 Jeep Cherokee.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Jeep Cherokee can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, 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. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Jeep Cherokee's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Jeep Cherokee maintenance, 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. 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'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 1990 Jeep Cherokee maintenance and repairs.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

Questions About 1990 Jeep Cherokee Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 1990 Jeep Cherokee. Get answers to common Jeep Cherokee maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • 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 should I switch my Jeep Cherokee to 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.
