How often should I service my 1985 GMC C2500 Suburban?
When it comes to your GMC C2500 Suburban, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your C2500 Suburban could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get C2500 Suburban maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1985 GMC C2500 Suburban!
The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by GMC, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your C2500 Suburban running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 1985 GMC C2500 Suburban problems.
Bring your 1985 GMC C2500 Suburban to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your C2500 Suburban. 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.
Could your 1985 GMC C2500 Suburban be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. 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 C2500 Suburban 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty C2500 Suburban) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your GMC C2500 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 1985 GMC C2500 Suburban running newer, longer.

Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1985 GMC C2500 Suburban.
