Maintenance for Your 1988 Jeep J20

What is the maintenance schedule for the 1988 Jeep J20?

Here’s Why 1988 Jeep J20 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Jeep J20 and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your J20 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. 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 1988 Jeep J20!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Jeep themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; 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 J20 running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1988 Jeep J20 problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Jeep J20

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1988 Jeep J20 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1988 Jeep J20. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Jeep J20 battery. 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 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 1988 Jeep J20's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1988 J20. 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 1988 Jeep J20.

Maintaining your Jeep J20 steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Jeep J20 suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Jeep J20's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Jeep J20 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. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Jeep J20 cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Jeep J20? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too.

  • When should I have Jeep J20 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 J20 to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Jeep J20 engines.
  •  Why are my Jeep dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Jeep J20 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.
