1985 Jeep Wagoneer Maintenance Schedule

How often should I service my 1985 Jeep Wagoneer?

Here’s Why 1985 Jeep Wagoneer Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Jeep Wagoneer and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Wagoneer 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. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Wagoneer maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1985 Jeep Wagoneer!

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. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Wagoneer perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1985 Jeep Wagoneer problems.

Overview of Essential Jeep Wagoneer Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1985 Jeep Wagoneer and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Wagoneer’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1985 Jeep Wagoneer. If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. 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 Wagoneer 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 Wagoneer stranded. Your Jeep Wagoneer won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1985 Jeep Wagoneer engine. To learn how often Jeep recommends you have the oil changed in your 1985 Wagoneer, 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1985 Jeep Wagoneer? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Jeep Wagoneer steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform Jeep Wagoneer suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Jeep Wagoneer's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine Jeep Wagoneer maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Jeep Wagoneer engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Jeep Wagoneer? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 1985 Jeep Wagoneer maintenance.

Take an active role in maintaining your 1985 Jeep Wagoneer. Get answers to common Jeep Wagoneer maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Jeep Wagoneer? You know your Jeep Wagoneer better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I switch my Jeep Wagoneer to high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Jeep Wagoneer? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • Can Jeep dashboard warning lights wait? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Jeep Wagoneer to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
