What to Know About 1998 GMC C1500 Scheduled Maintenance

You want your GMC C1500 to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your C1500 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your C1500, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1998 GMC C1500 maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, GMC themselves. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your C1500 running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1998 GMC C1500 problems in the future.

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1998 GMC C1500 and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your C1500. 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1998 GMC C1500. 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 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 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 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 prevent premature wear on your 1998 GMC C1500 engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1998 C1500. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1998 GMC C1500.

Periodic service to the steering system in your GMC C1500 can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide GMC C1500 steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your GMC C1500's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine GMC C1500 maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your GMC C1500’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your GMC C1500 radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1998 GMC C1500 maintenance.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my GMC C1500? You know your GMC C1500 better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I switch my GMC C1500 to high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your GMC C1500? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
