Here’s Why 1985 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Jeep Grand Wagoneer and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Grand Wagoneer. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Grand Wagoneer maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1985 Jeep Grand Wagoneer!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Jeep, your vehicle manufacturer. 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 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 Grand Wagoneer's life, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 1985 Jeep Grand Wagoneer problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Jeep Grand Wagoneer

Bring your 1985 Jeep Grand Wagoneer to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Grand Wagoneer's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1985 Jeep Grand Wagoneer. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Jeep Grand Wagoneer 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 Grand Wagoneer could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 1985 Jeep Grand Wagoneer's engine run smoother. See Jeep's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1985 Grand Wagoneer 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'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1985 Jeep Grand Wagoneer.

Maintaining your Jeep Grand Wagoneer 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. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Jeep Grand Wagoneer steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Jeep Grand Wagoneer's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Jeep Grand Wagoneer maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Jeep Grand Wagoneer cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Jeep Grand Wagoneer radiator? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1985 Jeep Grand Wagoneer maintenance.

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

1985 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 1985 Jeep Grand Wagoneer. Get answers to common Jeep Grand Wagoneer maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Jeep Grand Wagoneer alignment checked? 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 use high mileage oil in my Jeep Grand Wagoneer? If your Jeep Grand Wagoneer 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? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Jeep Grand Wagoneer, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
