How often should I service my 1988 Ford Bronco?
Take care of your Ford Bronco and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your Bronco 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 Bronco maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1988 Ford Bronco!
This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Ford themselves. 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 Bronco's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1988 Ford Bronco problems in the future.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1988 Ford Bronco and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Bronco’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.
Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1988 Ford Bronco. If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and 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 Ford Bronco 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Bronco stranded. Your Ford Bronco could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1988 Ford Bronco engine. See Ford's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1988 Bronco 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'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1988 Ford Bronco.
Maintaining your Ford Bronco steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Ford Bronco suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Ford Bronco's steering system with regular maintenance.
