What to Know About 1985 Chevrolet Astro Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Chevrolet Astro and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your Astro has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. 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 Astro maintenance. Just follow your 1985 Chevrolet Astro maintenance schedule!

Chevrolet knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Astro running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1985 Chevrolet Astro problems.

Overview of Essential Chevrolet Astro Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1985 Chevrolet Astro 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Astro's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 1985 Chevrolet Astro be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Astro may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Chevrolet Astro battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Astro stranded. Your Chevrolet Astro won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1985 Chevrolet Astro engine. See Chevrolet's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1985 Astro in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1985 Chevrolet Astro.

Routine upkeep for your Chevrolet Astro suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform Chevrolet Astro suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Chevrolet Astro's steering system require regular maintenance.

  • When should I have Chevrolet Astro alignment checked? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Chevrolet Astro? If your Chevrolet Astro has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can Chevrolet dashboard warning lights wait? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Chevrolet Astro to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
