Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Jeep Scrambler

Bring your 1983 Jeep Scrambler to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Scrambler’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1983 Jeep Scrambler. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Scrambler may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Jeep Scrambler battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 Scrambler) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Jeep Scrambler won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1983 Jeep Scrambler running newer, longer. To learn how often Jeep recommends you have the oil changed in your 1983 Scrambler, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. 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 1983 Jeep Scrambler.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Jeep Scrambler can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Jeep Scrambler 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 Scrambler's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Jeep Scrambler maintenance, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car.

Questions About 1983 Jeep Scrambler Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 1983 Jeep Scrambler. Get answers to common Jeep Scrambler maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Jeep Scrambler? 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 does my Jeep Scrambler need high mileage oil? If your Jeep Scrambler has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Jeep? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Jeep Scrambler 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.
