What to Know About 1985 Chevrolet Corvette Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Chevrolet Corvette to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Corvette. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Corvette, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1985 Chevrolet Corvette!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Chevrolet, your vehicle manufacturer. 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 fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Corvette's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1985 Chevrolet Corvette problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Chevrolet Corvette

Bring your 1985 Chevrolet Corvette to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Corvette's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1985 Chevrolet Corvette? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Chevrolet Corvette battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Corvette) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Chevrolet Corvette could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 1985 Chevrolet Corvette's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1985 Corvette. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1985 Chevrolet Corvette? We can help with that, too!

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 Corvette 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. Components within your Chevrolet Corvette's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Chevrolet Corvette maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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 Corvette’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.
