How Often to Get 1988 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1988 Jeep Grand Wagoneer? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 1988 Grand Wagoneer’s oil should be changed according to Jeep’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics 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 areas, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Jeep Grand Wagoneer. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1988 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Jeep Grand Wagoneer motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Grand Wagoneer’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Jeep Grand Wagoneer oil at home? 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Jeep exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
