Need more info about 1986 Jeep Grand Wagoneer oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of 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.

Your 1986 Grand Wagoneer’s oil should be changed according to Jeep’s recommended oil change 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 knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Jeep recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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.

1986 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Jeep Grand Wagoneer engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Jeep Grand Wagoneer 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 Grand Wagoneer 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 with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Jeep Grand Wagoneer exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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 worn cylinder walls.
