1985 Jeep Wagoneer Oil Change

When to Change 1985 Jeep Wagoneer Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Jeep Wagoneer’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Jeep recommends changing your 1985 Wagoneer’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Wagoneer in the above table. Your Wagoneer may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Jeep recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Jeep Wagoneer. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Jeep Wagoneer Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1985 Jeep Wagoneer motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Jeep has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 1985 Wagoneer. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your Wagoneer's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Wagoneer by considering your driving habits, and odometer.

1985 Jeep Wagoneer Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Jeep Wagoneer motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Wagoneer’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Jeep Wagoneer oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Jeep exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
