Oil Changes for 1989 Jeep Wagoneer

How Often to Get 1989 Jeep Wagoneer Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Jeep Wagoneer’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 1989 Wagoneer’s oil should be changed according to Jeep’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Wagoneer may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Jeep if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. 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 Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Jeep Wagoneer?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1989 Jeep Wagoneer motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Jeep has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 1989 Wagoneer. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, 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 the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important 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 preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1989 Jeep Wagoneer Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Jeep Wagoneer engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Jeep Wagoneer engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Jeep Wagoneer oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Jeep Wagoneer exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
