What is the maintenance schedule for the 1996 GMC C2500?
When it comes to your GMC C2500, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your C2500 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. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine C2500 maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1996 GMC C2500!
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; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your C2500 perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1996 GMC C2500 problems in the future.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1996 GMC C2500 and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your C2500'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 1996 GMC C2500? In general, car batteries only last 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 battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty C2500) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your GMC C2500 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
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 1996 GMC C2500 running newer, longer.

Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. 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 1996 GMC C2500.
