How often should I service my 1989 Chevrolet Astro?
Take care of your Chevrolet Astro and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Astro. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Astro maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1989 Chevrolet Astro!
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 fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Astro's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1989 Chevrolet Astro problems.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1989 Chevrolet Astro for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Astro’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.
Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1989 Chevrolet Astro? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. 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 Chevrolet Astro 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 Astro) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Chevrolet Astro could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1989 Chevrolet Astro running newer, longer. To learn how often Chevrolet recommends you have the oil changed in your 1989 Astro, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1989 Chevrolet Astro.
Maintaining your Chevrolet Astro steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components 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.
Without routine Chevrolet Astro maintenance, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. 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 Chevrolet Astro engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Chevrolet Astro radiator? We got it. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1989 Chevrolet Astro maintenance.
