What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1985 Chevrolet C10 Suburban?
When it comes to your Chevrolet C10 Suburban, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your C10 Suburban could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your C10 Suburban, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1985 Chevrolet C10 Suburban!
The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Chevrolet, your vehicle manufacturer. 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 tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your C10 Suburban's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1985 Chevrolet C10 Suburban problems.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1985 Chevrolet C10 Suburban for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with 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 C10 Suburban. 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 1985 Chevrolet C10 Suburban be ready for a new battery? 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). 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. 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 C10 Suburban battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Chevrolet C10 Suburban could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1985 Chevrolet C10 Suburban engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1985 C10 Suburban. 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'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1985 Chevrolet C10 Suburban.
