When to Change 1987 Jeep J10 Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1987 Jeep J10? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 1987 J10’s oil should be changed according to Jeep’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your J10 in the above table. No matter the mileage, your J10 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Jeep recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Jeep J10. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 1987 Jeep J10?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Jeep J10. Jeep has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 1987 Jeep J10 vehicles. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your J10's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your J10 by taking into account your driving style, and odometer.

1987 Jeep J10 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Jeep J10? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your J10’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Jeep J10 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Jeep exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
