Scheduled Maintenance for Your 1988 Chrysler LeBaron

What is the maintenance schedule for the 1988 Chrysler LeBaron?

Here’s Why 1988 Chrysler LeBaron Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Chrysler LeBaron and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your LeBaron 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 LeBaron, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1988 Chrysler LeBaron!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Chrysler, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like 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 maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1988 Chrysler LeBaron problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Chrysler LeBaron Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1988 Chrysler LeBaron for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your LeBaron. 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.

Could your 1988 Chrysler LeBaron be ready for a new battery? 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall 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. 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 Chrysler LeBaron could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 1988 Chrysler LeBaron's engine run smoother. To learn how often Chrysler recommends you have the oil changed in your 1988 LeBaron, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. 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. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1988 Chrysler LeBaron.

Maintaining your Chrysler LeBaron steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Chrysler LeBaron suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Chrysler LeBaron's steering and suspension system.

If you skip recommended Chrysler LeBaron services, 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. 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 Chrysler LeBaron engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Chrysler LeBaron radiator? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 1988 Chrysler LeBaron maintenance.
