Your Guide to 1996 Chevrolet Caprice Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Chevrolet Caprice, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Caprice. 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. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1996 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 tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Caprice perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1996 Chevrolet Caprice problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Chevrolet Caprice

Bring your 1996 Chevrolet Caprice to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Caprice. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Could your 1996 Chevrolet Caprice be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every 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. 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 Caprice battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. 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 be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1996 Chevrolet Caprice running newer, longer. To learn how often Chevrolet recommends you have the oil changed in your 1996 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. 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 1996 Chevrolet Caprice.

Maintaining your Chevrolet Caprice steering and suspension 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 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Chevrolet Caprice's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Chevrolet Caprice maintenance, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Chevrolet Caprice’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Need a new Chevrolet Caprice radiator? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1996 Chevrolet Caprice maintenance.

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

Questions About 1996 Chevrolet Caprice Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 1996 Chevrolet Caprice. Get answers to common Chevrolet Caprice maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Chevrolet Caprice 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 Caprice to high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Chevrolet Caprice? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • Can Chevrolet dashboard warning lights wait? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Chevrolet Caprice, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
