It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1999 GMC C1500 Suburban!

Overview of Essential GMC C1500 Suburban Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1999 GMC C1500 Suburban for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1999 GMC C1500 Suburban? 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 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! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your GMC C1500 Suburban won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1999 GMC C1500 Suburban running newer, longer. See GMC's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1999 C1500 Suburban 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1999 GMC C1500 Suburban? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your GMC C1500 Suburban steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!).

Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform GMC C1500 Suburban suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your GMC C1500 Suburban's steering and suspension system.

If you skip recommended GMC C1500 Suburban services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally.
