Overview of Essential Dodge Daytona Maintenance Needs

Bring your 1988 Dodge Daytona to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Daytona's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1988 Dodge Daytona. In general, car batteries only last 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. 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 Daytona 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. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Daytona) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Dodge Daytona won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1988 Dodge Daytona's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1988 Daytona. 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1988 Dodge Daytona? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Dodge Daytona 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. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide the appropriate Dodge Daytona steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Dodge Daytona's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Dodge Daytona maintenance, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car.

Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Dodge Daytona’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.

  • When should I have Dodge Daytona alignment checked? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 1988 Daytona is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Dodge Daytona? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Dodge Daytona? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Dodge? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Dodge Daytona, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
