Here’s Why 1983 Ford Bronco Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Ford Bronco and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Bronco has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. 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 Bronco maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1983 Ford Bronco!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Ford themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; 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. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Bronco running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1983 Ford Bronco problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Ford Bronco Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1983 Ford Bronco for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Bronco. 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 1983 Ford Bronco? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Ford Bronco 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 Bronco) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Ford Bronco could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 1983 Ford Bronco's engine run smoother. To learn how often Ford recommends you have the oil changed in your 1983 Bronco, 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.
