Oil Changes for 1986 Jeep Wagoneer

How Often to Get 1986 Jeep Wagoneer Oil Changes

Need more info about 1986 Jeep Wagoneer oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Jeep recommends changing your 1986 Wagoneer’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Jeep-recommended oil change intervals, your Wagoneer may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Jeep if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Jeep Wagoneer. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1986 Jeep Wagoneer Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Jeep Wagoneer motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Jeep Wagoneer engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Jeep Wagoneer oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces 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? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
