Take care of your Chevrolet C1500 and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your C1500 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. 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 C1500 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1999 Chevrolet C1500!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Chevrolet, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your C1500 perform better, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1999 Chevrolet C1500 problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Chevrolet C1500 Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 1999 Chevrolet C1500 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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 C1500. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1999 Chevrolet C1500? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Chevrolet C1500 battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 C1500 stranded. Your Chevrolet C1500 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1999 Chevrolet C1500'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 1999 C1500. 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 1999 Chevrolet C1500.

Routine upkeep for your Chevrolet C1500 suspension and steering 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 the appropriate Chevrolet C1500 steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Chevrolet C1500's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Chevrolet C1500 maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. 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 C1500 engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Chevrolet C1500? We got it. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Chevrolet C1500? 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. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Chevrolet C1500? If your Chevrolet C1500 has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can Chevrolet dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Chevrolet C1500 in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
