What to Know About 1986 Jeep J10 Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Jeep J10 to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your J10 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine J10 maintenance. Just follow your 1986 Jeep J10 maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Jeep, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your J10 running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1986 Jeep J10 problems.

Overview of Essential Jeep J10 Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1986 Jeep J10 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your J10's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 1986 Jeep J10 be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your J10 may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Jeep J10 battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! 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 J10 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1986 Jeep J10 running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1986 J10. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1986 Jeep J10? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Jeep J10 suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Jeep J10 steering and suspension services. 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.

If you skip recommended Jeep J10 services, 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. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Jeep J10 engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is your Jeep J10 radiator in need of replacement? We got it. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re here to fix that, too.

Take an active role in maintaining your 1986 Jeep J10. Get answers to common Jeep J10 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Jeep J10? 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 use high mileage oil in my Jeep J10? 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.
  • Can Jeep dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Jeep J10 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.
