How often should I service my 1987 Dodge Caravan?
When it comes to your Dodge Caravan, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Caravan could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Caravan maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1987 Dodge Caravan!
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; 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 Caravan's life, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1987 Dodge Caravan problems in the future.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1987 Dodge Caravan 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Caravan. 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.
Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1987 Dodge Caravan? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Caravan may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Dodge Caravan battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 Caravan) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Dodge Caravan 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 1987 Dodge Caravan engine. See Dodge's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1987 Caravan 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. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1987 Dodge Caravan.
Periodic service to the steering system in your Dodge Caravan can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Dodge Caravan steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Dodge Caravan's steering system with regular maintenance.
If you skip recommended Dodge Caravan services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Dodge Caravan’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Need a new Dodge Caravan radiator? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1987 Dodge Caravan maintenance.
