Overview of Essential Chevrolet C20 Suburban Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1985 Chevrolet C20 Suburban and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your C20 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1985 Chevrolet C20 Suburban. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years.

Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty C20 Suburban) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Chevrolet C20 Suburban won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Chevrolet C20 Suburban? Check your car for pothole 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 C20 Suburban? If your Chevrolet C20 Suburban 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!
  •  Why are my Chevrolet dashboard lights on? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should.
