Overview of Essential Chevrolet C1500 Suburban Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1998 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 1998 Chevrolet C1500 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). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Chevrolet C1500 Suburban 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 C1500 Suburban stranded. Your Chevrolet C1500 Suburban won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1998 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban running newer, longer. To learn how often Chevrolet recommends you have the oil changed in your 1998 C1500 Suburban, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. 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 C1500 Suburban.

Routine upkeep for your Chevrolet C1500 Suburban suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle.

  • When should I have Chevrolet C1500 Suburban alignment checked? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage.

It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Chevrolet C1500 Suburban engines.
  •  Why are my Chevrolet dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Chevrolet C1500 Suburban in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light.
