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

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Chevrolet Caprice Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1987 Chevrolet Caprice and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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 Caprice'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 Caprice. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to 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 Caprice battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! 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.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1987 Chevrolet Caprice running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1987 Caprice. 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 1987 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. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Chevrolet Caprice steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Chevrolet Caprice's steering and suspension system.

If you skip recommended Chevrolet Caprice 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!). Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too.
