How often should I service my 1985 Chevrolet Camaro?
Take care of your Chevrolet Camaro and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Camaro. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Camaro, 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 Camaro!
Chevrolet knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Camaro's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1985 Chevrolet Camaro problems.
Bring your 1985 Chevrolet Camaro to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Camaro's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.
Could your 1985 Chevrolet Camaro 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Chevrolet Camaro battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. 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 Camaro 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 help your 1985 Chevrolet Camaro'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 1985 Camaro. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1985 Chevrolet Camaro? We can help with that, too!
Maintaining your Chevrolet Camaro steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). 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, perform Chevrolet Camaro suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Chevrolet Camaro's steering system with regular maintenance.
If you skip recommended Chevrolet Camaro services, 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. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Chevrolet Camaro cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Chevrolet Camaro radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 1985 Chevrolet Camaro maintenance and repairs.
