Your Guide to 1989 Chevrolet Corvette Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Chevrolet Corvette and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Corvette 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 Corvette, 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 1989 Chevrolet Corvette!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Chevrolet themselves. 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 oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Corvette running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1989 Chevrolet Corvette problems.

Overview of Essential Chevrolet Corvette Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1989 Chevrolet Corvette for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1989 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). 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 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! 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 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 1989 Chevrolet Corvette's engine run smoother. To learn how often Chevrolet recommends you have the oil changed in your 1989 Corvette, 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 1989 Chevrolet Corvette.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Chevrolet Corvette can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Chevrolet Corvette's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Chevrolet Corvette maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Chevrolet Corvette engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is your Chevrolet Corvette radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1989 Chevrolet Corvette maintenance.
