How often should I service my 1989 Chevrolet Caprice?
You want your Chevrolet Caprice to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Caprice has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Caprice, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1989 Chevrolet Caprice 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 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 1989 Chevrolet Caprice problems.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1989 Chevrolet Caprice for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. 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.
Could your 1989 Chevrolet Caprice be ready for a new battery? 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. 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. 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 Caprice won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1989 Chevrolet Caprice engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1989 Caprice. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1989 Chevrolet Caprice? We can help with that, too!
Periodic service to the steering system in your Chevrolet Caprice can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). 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, perform Chevrolet Caprice suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut 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.
