Your Chevrolet El Camino isn’t just a car. It’s a part of your lifestyle. Keep it running newer, longer and schedule your routine maintenance appointment today.
What is the maintenance schedule for the 1987 Chevrolet El Camino?
You want your Chevrolet El Camino to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your El Camino has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your El Camino, 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 1987 Chevrolet El Camino!
This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Chevrolet themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your El Camino running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1987 Chevrolet El Camino problems in the future.
Bring your 1987 Chevrolet El Camino to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your El Camino'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 1987 Chevrolet El Camino. 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your El Camino may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Chevrolet El Camino 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. 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 El Camino won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1987 Chevrolet El Camino engine. See Chevrolet's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1987 El Camino in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1987 Chevrolet El Camino? We can help with that, too!
Routine upkeep for your Chevrolet El Camino suspension and steering system 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. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Chevrolet El Camino suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Chevrolet El Camino's steering system with regular maintenance.
Without routine Chevrolet El Camino maintenance, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C.
