Here’s Why 2003 Jeep Wrangler Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Jeep Wrangler to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Wrangler could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Wrangler, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2003 Jeep Wrangler maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Jeep, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; 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. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Wrangler's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2003 Jeep Wrangler problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Jeep Wrangler

Bring your 2003 Jeep Wrangler to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2003 Jeep Wrangler. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Wrangler may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Jeep Wrangler battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Wrangler stranded. Your Jeep Wrangler won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2003 Jeep Wrangler running newer, longer. See Jeep's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2003 Wrangler in the chart at the top of this page. 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 2003 Jeep Wrangler.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Jeep Wrangler? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 2003 Wrangler is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When does my Jeep Wrangler need high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Jeep Wrangler engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Jeep? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Jeep Wrangler, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
