Scheduled Maintenance for Your 1986 Jeep Grand Wagoneer

What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1986 Jeep Grand Wagoneer?

Here’s Why 1986 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. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Grand Wagoneer maintenance. Just follow your 1986 Jeep Grand Wagoneer maintenance schedule!

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; however, recommended maintenance usually includes 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 Grand Wagoneer running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1986 Jeep Grand Wagoneer problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Jeep Grand Wagoneer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1986 Jeep Grand Wagoneer 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1986 Jeep Grand Wagoneer? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Grand Wagoneer may need a replacement battery sooner. 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. 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 Grand Wagoneer could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 1986 Jeep Grand Wagoneer's engine run smoother. To learn how often Jeep recommends you have the oil changed in your 1986 Grand Wagoneer, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1986 Jeep Grand Wagoneer? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Jeep Grand Wagoneer suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide the appropriate Jeep Grand Wagoneer steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Jeep Grand Wagoneer's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Jeep Grand Wagoneer maintenance, 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. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Jeep Grand Wagoneer engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Jeep Grand Wagoneer? You know your Jeep Grand Wagoneer better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • 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
