How often should I service my 1989 Jeep Wrangler?
Take care of your Jeep Wrangler and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Wrangler could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Wrangler maintenance. Just follow your 1989 Jeep Wrangler maintenance schedule!
This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Jeep themselves. 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 tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Wrangler perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1989 Jeep Wrangler problems.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1989 Jeep Wrangler 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 Wrangler. 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 1989 Jeep Wrangler be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to 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 Wrangler 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 Wrangler stranded. Your Jeep Wrangler could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1989 Jeep Wrangler's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1989 Wrangler. 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 can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1989 Jeep Wrangler.
Periodic service to the steering system in your Jeep Wrangler can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide the appropriate Jeep Wrangler 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. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Jeep Wrangler's steering and suspension system.
If you skip recommended Jeep Wrangler services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. 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 Wrangler’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.
