What to Know About 1987 Jeep J10 Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Jeep J10 to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your J10 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your J10, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1987 Jeep J10!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Jeep themselves. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. 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 maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1987 Jeep J10 problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Jeep J10

Bring your 1987 Jeep J10 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your J10’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 1987 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty J10) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Jeep J10 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1987 Jeep J10 engine. To learn how often Jeep recommends you have the oil changed in your 1987 J10, check out the information table at the beginning 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'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1987 Jeep J10.

Maintaining your Jeep J10 steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle.

These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Jeep J10's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Jeep J10 maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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.

Take an active role in maintaining your 1987 Jeep J10. Get answers to common Jeep J10 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Jeep J10 alignment checked? 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 J10 to 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.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Jeep? 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.
