Scheduled Maintenance for Your 1989 Chevrolet Blazer

What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1989 Chevrolet Blazer?

Here’s Why 1989 Chevrolet Blazer Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Chevrolet Blazer and it'll take care of you. With proactive 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. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1989 Chevrolet Blazer!

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. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Blazer perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1989 Chevrolet Blazer problems.

Overview of Essential Chevrolet Blazer Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1989 Chevrolet Blazer 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 Blazer’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1989 Chevrolet Blazer. In general, car batteries only last three to 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. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Blazer) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Chevrolet Blazer won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 1989 Chevrolet Blazer's engine run smoother. To learn how often Chevrolet recommends you have the oil changed in your 1989 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. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1989 Chevrolet Blazer? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Chevrolet Blazer can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform Chevrolet Blazer 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 Blazer's steering and suspension system.

If you skip recommended Chevrolet Blazer services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Chevrolet Blazer cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Chevrolet Blazer radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1989 Chevrolet Blazer maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

  • When should I have Chevrolet Blazer alignment checked? 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 should I use high mileage oil in my Chevrolet Blazer? If your Chevrolet Blazer 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!
  • Can Chevrolet dashboard warning lights wait? 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.
