What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1988 Dodge B250?
When it comes to your Dodge B250, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your B250 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. 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 B250 maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1988 Dodge B250!
The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Dodge, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your B250 perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1988 Dodge B250 problems.
Bring your 1988 Dodge B250 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your B250’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.
Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1988 Dodge B250? 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). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Dodge B250 battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your B250 stranded. Your Dodge B250 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1988 Dodge B250 running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1988 B250. 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 1988 Dodge B250.

These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement.
