Essential Maintenance to Keep Your GMC C3500 Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 1984 GMC C3500 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your C3500’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1984 GMC C3500. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your C3500 may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your GMC C3500 battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 C3500 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1984 GMC C3500 engine. To learn how often GMC recommends you have the oil changed in your 1984 C3500, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1984 GMC C3500.

Periodic service to the steering system in your GMC C3500 can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!).

Components within your GMC C3500's steering system require regular maintenance.
