Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Chevrolet C10 Suburban Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1984 Chevrolet C10 Suburban and our technicians will jump right in 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1984 Chevrolet C10 Suburban. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Chevrolet C10 Suburban battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your C10 Suburban stranded. Your Chevrolet C10 Suburban won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1984 Chevrolet C10 Suburban running newer, longer. See Chevrolet's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1984 C10 Suburban in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1984 Chevrolet C10 Suburban.
