1985 Jeep Scrambler Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune-Ups to Help Your Jeep Scrambler Run Better

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you want your 1985 Jeep Scrambler’s engine to last for a long time. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Scrambler’s power on the road. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you follow the guidelines specified by Jeep for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Scrambler’s engine running smoother, longer.

Jeep Scrambler Engine Tune-Up Services

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1985 Jeep Scrambler. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Scrambler. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your Scrambler’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Keep in mind that your Scrambler's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Where Should I Go for My Jeep Scrambler Tune-Up?

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for your next 1985 Scrambler engine tune-up. Not sure when you’re due for a tune-up? Use Jeep’s recommended maintenance schedule as a reference point, or schedule an appointment ASAP if you notice any of these signs: decreased gas mileage, "rough" idling or stalling when stopped, knocking noises in the engine, or a lit up check engine light on your dashboard.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1985 Jeep Scramblers

  • Will it hurt my Jeep Scrambler to drive with old spark plugs? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Jeep’s recommendations.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Jeep Scrambler? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Jeep Scrambler engine than others? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
