1987 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Oil Change

How Often to Change 1987 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Oil

Need more info about 1987 Jeep Grand Wagoneer oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 1987 Grand Wagoneer’s oil should be changed according to Jeep’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Grand Wagoneer may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Jeep if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Jeep Grand Wagoneer Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Jeep Grand Wagoneer. Jeep has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 1987 Jeep Grand Wagoneer vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Grand Wagoneer’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Grand Wagoneer by taking into account your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1987 Jeep Grand Wagoneer

  • What can low oil do to my Jeep Grand Wagoneer engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Grand Wagoneer’s 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 oil on my own? 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Jeep exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
