Scheduled Maintenance for Your 1988 Jeep Wagoneer

How often should I service my 1988 Jeep Wagoneer?

Here’s Why 1988 Jeep Wagoneer Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Jeep Wagoneer to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Wagoneer could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get Wagoneer maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 1988 Jeep Wagoneer maintenance schedule!

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. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes 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, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1988 Jeep Wagoneer problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Jeep Wagoneer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1988 Jeep Wagoneer for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Wagoneer. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1988 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. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Wagoneer) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Jeep Wagoneer could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

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 1988 Jeep Wagoneer engine. To learn how often Jeep recommends you have the oil changed in your 1988 Wagoneer, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. 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 1988 Jeep Wagoneer? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Jeep Wagoneer suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled!

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.

Questions About 1988 Jeep Wagoneer Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 1988 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 use high mileage oil in my Jeep Wagoneer? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Jeep Wagoneer engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Jeep? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Jeep Wagoneer, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
