What to Know About 1987 Dodge B150 Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Dodge B150, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your B150 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get B150 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1987 Dodge B150!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Dodge, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your B150's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1987 Dodge B150 problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Dodge B150 Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1987 Dodge B150 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your B150. 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 1987 Dodge B150. 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 B150 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 Dodge B150 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. 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 Dodge B150 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1987 Dodge B150 running newer, longer. To learn how often Dodge recommends you have the oil changed in your 1987 B150, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. 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 1987 Dodge B150.
