What is the maintenance schedule for the 1985 Chevrolet Citation II?

Here’s Why 1985 Chevrolet Citation II Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Chevrolet Citation II to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Citation II has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more.

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Chevrolet themselves.

Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Citation II perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1985 Chevrolet Citation II problems.

Overview of Essential Chevrolet Citation II Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1985 Chevrolet Citation II 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Citation II. 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 1985 Chevrolet Citation II 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Chevrolet Citation II battery. 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. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Citation II) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Chevrolet Citation II could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 1985 Chevrolet Citation II's engine run smoother.
