What to Know About 1998 Chevrolet Blazer Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Chevrolet Blazer to last as long as possible. 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. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Blazer maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1998 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. 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 prevent common 1998 Chevrolet Blazer problems.

Overview of Essential Chevrolet Blazer Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1998 Chevrolet Blazer for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. 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 1998 Chevrolet Blazer be ready for a new battery? 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Chevrolet Blazer battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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, 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.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 1998 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 1998 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 can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1998 Chevrolet Blazer.

Maintaining your Chevrolet Blazer steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. 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 Chevrolet Blazer steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing 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!). 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. Need a new Chevrolet Blazer radiator? We’ve got your back. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 1998 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.
