Take care of your Jeep Grand Wagoneer and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Grand Wagoneer could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark.

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Jeep, your vehicle manufacturer.

Overview of Essential Jeep Grand Wagoneer Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1988 Jeep Grand Wagoneer 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Grand Wagoneer. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1988 Jeep Grand Wagoneer. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to 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. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Grand Wagoneer) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Jeep Grand Wagoneer won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

  • 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.
  • When should I switch my Jeep Grand Wagoneer to high mileage oil? 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!
  •  Why are my Jeep dashboard lights on? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Jeep Grand Wagoneer to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
