What to Know About 1989 Dodge B150 Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Dodge B150 to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your B150 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine B150 maintenance. Just follow your 1989 Dodge B150 maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Dodge, 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, 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 B150 running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 1989 Dodge B150 problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Dodge B150 Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1989 Dodge B150 and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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 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 1989 Dodge B150. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Dodge B150 battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty B150) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Dodge B150 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1989 Dodge B150 engine. See Dodge's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1989 B150 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 1989 Dodge B150? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Dodge B150 steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!).

Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide Dodge B150 steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement.

Without routine Dodge B150 maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Dodge B150? You know your Dodge B150 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 Dodge B150 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 Dodge B150 engines.
  •  Why are my Dodge dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Dodge B150 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.
