How often should I service my 1987 Jeep J20?
You want your Jeep J20 to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your J20 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine J20 maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1987 Jeep J20!
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. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your J20's life, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1987 Jeep J20 problems.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1987 Jeep J20 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your J20's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.
Could your 1987 Jeep J20 be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your J20 may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Jeep J20 battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your J20 stranded. Your Jeep J20 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 1987 Jeep J20 running newer, longer. To learn how often Jeep recommends you have the oil changed in your 1987 J20, 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 can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1987 Jeep J20.

This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication.
