Here’s Why 1991 Chevrolet Astro Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Chevrolet Astro and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, 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. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1991 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 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 1991 Chevrolet Astro problems.

Overview of Essential Chevrolet Astro Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1991 Chevrolet Astro and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. 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 1991 Chevrolet Astro? 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Chevrolet Astro battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Chevrolet Astro won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1991 Chevrolet Astro engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1991 Astro. 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 1991 Chevrolet Astro.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Chevrolet Astro can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. 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. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Chevrolet Astro's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine Chevrolet Astro maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Chevrolet Astro’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your Chevrolet Astro radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 1991 Chevrolet Astro maintenance.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

Questions About 1991 Chevrolet Astro Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 1991 Chevrolet Astro. Get answers to common Chevrolet Astro maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Chevrolet Astro? 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!
  •  Why are my Chevrolet dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Chevrolet Astro in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
