How often should I service my 1985 Chrysler LeBaron?
When it comes to your Chrysler LeBaron, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your LeBaron. 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 LeBaron, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1985 Chrysler LeBaron maintenance schedule!
The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Chrysler, 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; 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 LeBaron running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 1985 Chrysler LeBaron problems.
Bring your 1985 Chrysler LeBaron to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your LeBaron'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 Chrysler LeBaron? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your LeBaron may need a replacement battery sooner. 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 Chrysler LeBaron 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. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty LeBaron) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Chrysler LeBaron 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 Chrysler LeBaron'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 LeBaron. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1985 Chrysler LeBaron.
