What is the maintenance schedule for the 1990 GMC C3500?
When it comes to your GMC C3500, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your C3500 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark.

Just follow your 1990 GMC C3500 maintenance schedule!
GMC knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; 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. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your C3500's life, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1990 GMC C3500 problems in the future.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1990 GMC C3500 for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your C3500's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.
Could your 1990 GMC C3500 be ready for a new battery? 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 C3500 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 C3500 battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your C3500 stranded. Your GMC C3500 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
