1998 Jeep Wrangler Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Jeep Wrangler

Is it tune-up time? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you drive a 1998 Jeep Wrangler. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Wrangler’s power on the road. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you follow the guidelines specified by Jeep for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Wrangler’s long-term engine performance.

Jeep Wrangler Engine Tune-Up Services

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Jeep Wrangler engine tune-up services. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Wrangler. Yet another service is a fuel system cleaning process, which involves removing varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits that have built up inside the fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate in your Wrangler. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your Wrangler can determine what kind of service it needs. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1998 Jeep Wranglers

  • Will it hurt my Jeep Wrangler to drive with old spark plugs? When it’s time to replace the spark plugs, don’t delay. These small (but vital!) parts provide the electric spark that your car needs in order to start, and old spark plugs can prevent your car from starting at all. Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so.
  • What does a puddle underneath my Jeep Wrangler mean? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my Wrangler engine? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
