When to Change 1987 Jeep Wagoneer Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1987 Jeep Wagoneer? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 1987 Wagoneer’s oil should be changed according to Jeep’s recommended oil change 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 engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Jeep recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Jeep Wagoneer. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Jeep Wagoneer Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1987 Jeep Wagoneer motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Jeep has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 1987 Wagoneer. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Wagoneer’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Wagoneer by considering your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1987 Jeep Wagoneer Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Jeep Wagoneer? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Jeep Wagoneer engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Jeep oil on my own? 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 professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Jeep Wagoneer exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
