1988 Chevrolet Blazer Maintenance Schedule

What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1988 Chevrolet Blazer?

Here’s Why 1988 Chevrolet Blazer Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Chevrolet Blazer, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Blazer. 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 Blazer maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1988 Chevrolet Blazer!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Chevrolet, your vehicle manufacturer. 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. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Blazer running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 1988 Chevrolet Blazer problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Chevrolet Blazer Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1988 Chevrolet Blazer 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 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 1988 Chevrolet Blazer? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Blazer may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Chevrolet Blazer 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 Blazer 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 1988 Chevrolet Blazer engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1988 Blazer. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1988 Chevrolet Blazer.

Routine upkeep for your Chevrolet Blazer 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. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide the appropriate Chevrolet Blazer steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Chevrolet Blazer's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Chevrolet Blazer maintenance, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. 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 Blazer’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Chevrolet Blazer? You know your Chevrolet Blazer better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When does my Chevrolet Blazer need high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Chevrolet Blazer engines.
  •  Why are my Chevrolet dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Chevrolet Blazer 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.
