1985 Jeep J20 Oil Change Service

When to Change 1985 Jeep J20 Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1985 Jeep J20? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Jeep recommends changing your 1985 J20’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your J20 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Jeep recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Jeep J20. 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 1985 Jeep J20?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1985 Jeep J20 motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Jeep has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 1985 Jeep J20 vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your J20's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your J20 by taking into account your driving style, weather and road conditions,

1985 Jeep J20 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Jeep J20 motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Jeep J20 engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Jeep oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil 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. 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, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
