Your Guide to 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Jeep Wrangler JK, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Wrangler JK has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Wrangler JK maintenance. Just follow your 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Jeep, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; 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. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Wrangler JK's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Jeep Wrangler JK Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Wrangler JK. 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.

Could your 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK be ready for a new battery? 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). 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Jeep Wrangler JK 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. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Jeep Wrangler JK won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2018 Wrangler JK. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Jeep Wrangler JK can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform Jeep Wrangler JK suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Jeep Wrangler JK's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine Jeep Wrangler JK 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. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Jeep Wrangler JK cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Jeep Wrangler JK radiator?
