Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1985 Jeep Grand Wagoneer? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires.

Jeep recommends changing your 1985 Grand Wagoneer’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Grand Wagoneer in the above table. Outside of Jeep-recommended oil change intervals, your Grand Wagoneer may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of 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, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Jeep Grand Wagoneer. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

1985 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Jeep Grand Wagoneer engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Grand Wagoneer’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Jeep Grand Wagoneer oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Jeep Grand Wagoneer spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
