Your Guide to 1997 Chevrolet Blazer Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Chevrolet Blazer to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Blazer. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. 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 1997 Chevrolet Blazer!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Chevrolet, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; 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. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Blazer running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1997 Chevrolet Blazer problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Chevrolet Blazer

Bring your 1997 Chevrolet Blazer to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with 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 1997 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Blazer stranded. Your Chevrolet Blazer won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1997 Chevrolet Blazer's engine run smoother. See Chevrolet's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1997 Blazer in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. 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 1997 Chevrolet Blazer? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Chevrolet Blazer suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled!

Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Chevrolet Blazer's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Chevrolet Blazer services, 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. 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.
