What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1989 Dodge Diplomat?
You want your Dodge Diplomat to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Diplomat could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Diplomat maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1989 Dodge Diplomat!
Dodge knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Diplomat perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1989 Dodge Diplomat problems in the future.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1989 Dodge Diplomat and a skilled technician will start the appointment with 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Diplomat. 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 1989 Dodge Diplomat? In general, car batteries only last three to 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 Diplomat 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 Diplomat) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Dodge Diplomat could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1989 Dodge Diplomat running newer, longer. To learn how often Dodge recommends you have the oil changed in your 1989 Diplomat, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1989 Dodge Diplomat.
