Your Guide to 2004 Jeep Wrangler Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Jeep Wrangler, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. 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? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Wrangler, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2004 Jeep Wrangler 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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Wrangler running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2004 Jeep Wrangler problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Jeep Wrangler Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2004 Jeep Wrangler and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. 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 2004 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. 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. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Wrangler) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Jeep Wrangler could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2004 Jeep Wrangler running newer, longer. See Jeep's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2004 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. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2004 Jeep Wrangler? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Jeep Wrangler 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! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Jeep Wrangler steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. 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.

Without routine Jeep Wrangler maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Jeep Wrangler engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Jeep Wrangler? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2004 Jeep Wrangler maintenance.

  • When should I have Jeep Wrangler alignment checked? You know your Jeep Wrangler better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving.
