How often should I service my 1989 Dodge Grand Caravan?
When it comes to your Dodge Grand Caravan, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your Grand Caravan has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Grand Caravan, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1989 Dodge Grand Caravan maintenance schedule!
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. 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, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Grand Caravan perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1989 Dodge Grand Caravan problems.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1989 Dodge Grand Caravan and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Grand Caravan'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 1989 Dodge Grand Caravan. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. 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 Grand Caravan battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Grand Caravan) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Dodge Grand Caravan 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 help your 1989 Dodge Grand Caravan's engine run smoother. See Dodge's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1989 Grand Caravan in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. 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 Grand Caravan? We can help with that, too!
