Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Jeep Grand Wagoneer Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1987 Jeep Grand Wagoneer for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Grand Wagoneer’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1987 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). There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Jeep Grand Wagoneer battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1987 Jeep Grand Wagoneer engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1987 Grand Wagoneer. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1987 Jeep Grand Wagoneer.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Jeep Grand Wagoneer can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!).

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Jeep Grand Wagoneer? 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.

It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Jeep Grand Wagoneer engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Jeep? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Jeep Grand Wagoneer in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
