Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Jeep J10 Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1985 Jeep J10 and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your J10. 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.

Could your 1985 Jeep J10 be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to 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. 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 J10 battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your J10 stranded. Your Jeep J10 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1985 Jeep J10 running newer, longer. See Jeep's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1985 J10 in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1985 Jeep J10.

This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Jeep J10's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Jeep J10 maintenance, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Jeep J10 cooling, heating, and climate control system.

  • When should I have Jeep J10 alignment checked? You know your Jeep J10 better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving.

  • When does my Jeep J10 need high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Jeep J10? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
