1986 Jeep Wagoneer Maintenance Schedule

Scheduled Maintenance for Your 1986 Jeep Wagoneer

What is the maintenance schedule for the 1986 Jeep Wagoneer?

Here’s Why 1986 Jeep Wagoneer Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Jeep Wagoneer, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Wagoneer. 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. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1986 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. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include 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 1986 Jeep Wagoneer problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Jeep Wagoneer Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 1986 Jeep Wagoneer to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Wagoneer's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1986 Jeep Wagoneer. 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Jeep Wagoneer battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Jeep Wagoneer won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1986 Jeep Wagoneer engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1986 Wagoneer. 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1986 Jeep Wagoneer? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Jeep Wagoneer can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). 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 the appropriate Jeep Wagoneer steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. 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 (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 Wagoneer’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your Jeep Wagoneer radiator in need of replacement? We got it. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 1986 Jeep Wagoneer maintenance and repairs.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

Questions About 1986 Jeep Wagoneer Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 1986 Jeep Wagoneer. Get answers to common Jeep Wagoneer maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Jeep Wagoneer alignment checked? 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 does my Jeep Wagoneer need high mileage oil? If your Jeep Wagoneer 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? 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.
