Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Jeep Grand Cherokee

Bring your 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Grand Cherokee’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Grand Cherokee may need a replacement battery sooner.

While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Grand Cherokee stranded. Your Jeep Grand Cherokee won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

To learn how often Jeep recommends you have the oil changed in your 1996 Grand 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. 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 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
