Here’s Why 1989 Jeep Wagoneer Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Jeep Wagoneer and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Wagoneer. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Wagoneer maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1989 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. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Wagoneer running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1989 Jeep Wagoneer problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Jeep Wagoneer Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1989 Jeep Wagoneer for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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.

Could your 1989 Jeep Wagoneer be ready for a new battery? 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. 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. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Wagoneer stranded. Your Jeep Wagoneer could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1989 Jeep Wagoneer running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1989 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. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1989 Jeep Wagoneer.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Jeep Wagoneer can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components 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. Components within your Jeep Wagoneer's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Jeep Wagoneer maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. 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 it time to replace the radiator in your Jeep Wagoneer? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it.

1989 Jeep Wagoneer Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 1989 Jeep Wagoneer. Get answers to common Jeep Wagoneer maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit 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 Jeep dashboard warning lights wait? 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
