1985 Jeep CJ7 Oil Change

How Often to Change 1985 Jeep CJ7 Oil

Need more info about 1985 Jeep CJ7 oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Jeep recommends having your 1985 Jeep CJ7’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your CJ7 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Jeep if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Jeep CJ7. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Jeep CJ7 Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1985 Jeep CJ7 motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Jeep has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 1985 CJ7. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your CJ7’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your CJ7 by taking into account your driving style, weather and road conditions,

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1985 Jeep CJ7

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Jeep CJ7? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your CJ7’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Jeep CJ7 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Jeep CJ7 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
