What is the maintenance schedule for the 1989 GMC C1500?
When it comes to your GMC C1500, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your C1500 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark.

It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1989 GMC C1500!
This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, GMC themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your C1500 perform better, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1989 GMC C1500 problems in the future.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1989 GMC C1500 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your C1500.

We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.
Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1989 GMC C1500. In general, car batteries only last three to five years.
