But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get Scrambler maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1984 Jeep Scrambler!

Jeep knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Scrambler's life, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1984 Jeep Scrambler problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Jeep Scrambler Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1984 Jeep Scrambler for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Scrambler. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1984 Jeep Scrambler? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Jeep Scrambler battery. 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Scrambler stranded. 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 prevent premature wear on your 1984 Jeep Scrambler engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1984 Scrambler. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1984 Jeep Scrambler.

Routine upkeep for your Jeep Scrambler suspension and steering 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! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Jeep Scrambler steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Jeep Scrambler's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Jeep Scrambler maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Jeep Scrambler’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Jeep Scrambler? We got it. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re here to fix that, too.
