How often should I service my 1985 Chevrolet Caprice?
When it comes to your Chevrolet Caprice, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your Caprice has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get Caprice maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1985 Chevrolet Caprice!
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, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Caprice perform better, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 1985 Chevrolet Caprice problems.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1985 Chevrolet Caprice for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Caprice’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.
Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1985 Chevrolet Caprice. In general, car batteries only last three to 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Chevrolet Caprice 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. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Caprice) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Chevrolet Caprice 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 Caprice's engine run smoother. To learn how often Chevrolet recommends you have the oil changed in your 1985 Caprice, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1985 Chevrolet Caprice.
Routine upkeep for your Chevrolet Caprice 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! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Chevrolet Caprice 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 Caprice's steering system require regular maintenance.
