It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1996 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Chevrolet, your vehicle manufacturer.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Chevrolet C1500 Suburban Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1996 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your C1500 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 1996 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every 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 C1500 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. 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 C1500 Suburban won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 1996 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban'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 C1500 Suburban. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. 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 1996 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban? We can help with that, too!
