What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1990 Chevrolet Caprice?

Here’s Why 1990 Chevrolet Caprice Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Chevrolet Caprice, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Caprice could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. 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 1990 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. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Caprice's life, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1990 Chevrolet Caprice problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Chevrolet Caprice Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 1990 Chevrolet Caprice to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. 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.

Could your 1990 Chevrolet Caprice be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Caprice may need a replacement battery sooner. 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 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1990 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 1990 Caprice. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1990 Chevrolet Caprice.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Chevrolet Caprice 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 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. 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.

Without routine Chevrolet Caprice maintenance, 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. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Chevrolet Caprice engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Chevrolet Caprice radiator? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 1990 Chevrolet Caprice maintenance.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Chevrolet Caprice? 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 Caprice 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 Caprice engines.
  • Can Chevrolet dashboard warning lights wait? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Chevrolet Caprice to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
