1987 Chevrolet Camaro Scheduled Maintenance

Maintenance for Your 1987 Chevrolet Camaro

What is the maintenance schedule for the 1987 Chevrolet Camaro?

Here’s Why 1987 Chevrolet Camaro Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Chevrolet Camaro and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Camaro. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Camaro, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1987 Chevrolet Camaro maintenance schedule!

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. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Camaro perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1987 Chevrolet Camaro problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Chevrolet Camaro Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 1987 Chevrolet Camaro to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in 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. 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 1987 Chevrolet Camaro. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Camaro may need a replacement battery sooner. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Chevrolet Camaro battery. 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty Camaro) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Chevrolet Camaro won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1987 Chevrolet Camaro engine. See Chevrolet's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1987 Camaro in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1987 Chevrolet Camaro.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Chevrolet Camaro 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 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. Components within your Chevrolet Camaro's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Chevrolet Camaro maintenance, 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 Camaro engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is your Chevrolet Camaro radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it.

  • When should I have Chevrolet Camaro 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. 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 switch my Chevrolet Camaro to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Chevrolet Camaro engines.
  • Can Chevrolet dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Chevrolet Camaro 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.
