What to Know About 1998 Chevrolet Corvette Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Chevrolet Corvette and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Corvette. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Corvette maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 1998 Chevrolet Corvette maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Chevrolet, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. 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 1998 Chevrolet Corvette problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Chevrolet Corvette Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 1998 Chevrolet Corvette to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Corvette. 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1998 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. 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 Corvette 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Corvette stranded. Your Chevrolet Corvette 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 1998 Chevrolet Corvette engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1998 Corvette. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. 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 1998 Chevrolet Corvette? We can help with that, too!

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. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, 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 skip recommended Chevrolet Corvette services, 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!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Chevrolet Corvette cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Chevrolet Corvette radiator? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1998 Chevrolet Corvette maintenance.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Chevrolet Corvette? You know your Chevrolet Corvette better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I switch my Chevrolet Corvette to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Chevrolet Corvette engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Chevrolet? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Chevrolet Corvette 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.
