You want your Chevrolet Blazer to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Blazer has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more.

It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Blazer maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1987 Chevrolet Blazer!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Chevrolet themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; 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 Blazer's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1987 Chevrolet Blazer problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Chevrolet Blazer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1987 Chevrolet Blazer for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check.

Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Blazer's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1987 Chevrolet Blazer? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Blazer 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 Chevrolet Blazer 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Blazer stranded. Your Chevrolet Blazer 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 prevent premature wear on your 1987 Chevrolet Blazer engine. To learn how often Chevrolet recommends you have the oil changed in your 1987 Blazer, 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. 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 1987 Chevrolet Blazer.
