Overview of Essential GMC C1500 Suburban Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1992 GMC C1500 Suburban for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with 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 C1500 Suburban's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 1992 GMC C1500 Suburban be ready for a new battery? 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your C1500 Suburban may need a replacement battery sooner. 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 GMC C1500 Suburban battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your C1500 Suburban stranded. Your GMC C1500 Suburban won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
