What is the maintenance schedule for the 1999 Jeep Cherokee?

Here’s Why 1999 Jeep Cherokee Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Jeep Cherokee to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Cherokee. 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. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1999 Jeep Cherokee!

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. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Cherokee running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 1999 Jeep Cherokee problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Jeep Cherokee

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1999 Jeep Cherokee 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. 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.

Could your 1999 Jeep Cherokee be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Cherokee may need a replacement battery sooner. 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. 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.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 1999 Jeep Cherokee's engine run smoother. To learn how often Jeep recommends you have the oil changed in your 1999 Cherokee, 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. 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 1999 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! 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.

If you fall behind on routine Jeep Cherokee maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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. 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 Jeep Cherokee’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your Jeep Cherokee radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 1999 Jeep Cherokee maintenance.
