Scheduled Maintenance for Your 1987 Chevrolet Chevette

What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1987 Chevrolet Chevette?

Here’s Why 1987 Chevrolet Chevette Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Chevrolet Chevette to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Chevette has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Chevette maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1987 Chevrolet Chevette!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Chevrolet themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include 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 Chevette's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1987 Chevrolet Chevette problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Chevrolet Chevette

Bring your 1987 Chevrolet Chevette to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Chevette's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 1987 Chevrolet Chevette 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. 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 Chevette 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. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Chevette stranded. Your Chevrolet Chevette won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

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 Chevette 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 Chevette. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1987 Chevrolet Chevette.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Chevrolet Chevette can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system 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. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Chevrolet Chevette's steering and suspension system.

  • When should I have Chevrolet Chevette 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 use high mileage oil in my Chevrolet Chevette? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Chevrolet Chevette? 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 I ignore dashboard lights on my Chevrolet? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Chevrolet Chevette in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
