How often should I service my 1997 Chevrolet Astro?
You want your Chevrolet Astro to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your Astro 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 Astro, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1997 Chevrolet Astro!
This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Chevrolet themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Astro perform better, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1997 Chevrolet Astro problems later.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1997 Chevrolet Astro 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. 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 1997 Chevrolet Astro? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Chevrolet Astro battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1997 Chevrolet Astro running newer, longer. To learn how often Chevrolet recommends you have the oil changed in your 1997 Astro, check out the information table at the beginning 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 1997 Chevrolet Astro.
