How Often to Change 1989 Jeep Wrangler Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Jeep Wrangler’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 1989 Wrangler’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 Wrangler may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Jeep recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Jeep Wrangler. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1989 Jeep Wrangler Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Jeep Wrangler motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Wrangler’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Jeep Wrangler oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Jeep exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
