The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by GMC, your vehicle manufacturer.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your GMC C2500

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2000 GMC C2500 and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your C2500’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2000 GMC C2500. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your C2500 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 C2500 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 C2500 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2000 GMC C2500's engine run smoother. To learn how often GMC recommends you have the oil changed in your 2000 C2500, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2000 GMC C2500.

These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement.
