Scheduled Maintenance for Your 1996 Chevrolet Blazer

What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1996 Chevrolet Blazer?

Here’s Why 1996 Chevrolet Blazer Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Chevrolet Blazer and it'll take care of you. 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. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Blazer, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1996 Chevrolet Blazer maintenance schedule!

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. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of 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 Blazer perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1996 Chevrolet Blazer problems.

Overview of Essential Chevrolet Blazer Maintenance Needs

Bring your 1996 Chevrolet Blazer to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Blazer. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Could your 1996 Chevrolet Blazer be ready for a new battery? 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. 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. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Blazer stranded. Your Chevrolet Blazer won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1996 Chevrolet Blazer's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1996 Blazer. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. 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 1996 Chevrolet Blazer.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Chevrolet Blazer 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, 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Chevrolet Blazer's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Chevrolet Blazer 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. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Chevrolet Blazer engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is your Chevrolet Blazer radiator in need of replacement? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 1996 Chevrolet Blazer maintenance and repairs.

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

1996 Chevrolet Blazer Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 1996 Chevrolet Blazer. Get answers to common Chevrolet Blazer maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • 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 I ignore dashboard lights on my Chevrolet? 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.
