This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Chevrolet themselves.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Chevrolet Camaro

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1986 Chevrolet Camaro and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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. 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1986 Chevrolet Camaro. 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). 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 Camaro 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 Camaro stranded. Your Chevrolet Camaro won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1986 Chevrolet Camaro running newer, longer. See Chevrolet's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1986 Camaro in the chart at the top of this page. 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'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1986 Chevrolet Camaro.

Routine upkeep for your Chevrolet Camaro 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. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Chevrolet Camaro 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 Camaro's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Chevrolet Camaro services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). 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. Need a new Chevrolet Camaro radiator?
