Maintenance for Your 1985 Chevrolet Chevette

What is the maintenance schedule for the 1985 Chevrolet Chevette?

Here’s Why 1985 Chevrolet Chevette Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Chevrolet Chevette to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your Chevette could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Chevette, 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 1985 Chevrolet Chevette!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Chevrolet themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of 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 Chevette perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1985 Chevrolet Chevette problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Chevrolet Chevette

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1985 Chevrolet Chevette and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 Chevette’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 Chevette. 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 Chevette 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 Chevette) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Chevrolet Chevette 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 1985 Chevrolet Chevette engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1985 Chevette. 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.

Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Chevrolet Chevette 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 Chevette's steering system with regular maintenance.

  • When should I have Chevrolet Chevette alignment checked? You know your Chevrolet Chevette better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving.
