What to Know About 1993 GMC C3500 Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your GMC C3500, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your C3500 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your C3500, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1993 GMC C3500!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by GMC, your vehicle manufacturer. 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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your C3500 perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1993 GMC C3500 problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your GMC C3500 Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1993 GMC C3500 for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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 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 1993 GMC C3500. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your GMC C3500 battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. 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.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1993 GMC C3500 running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1993 C3500. 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 1993 GMC C3500.

Take an active role in maintaining your 1993 GMC C3500. Get answers to common GMC C3500 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my GMC C3500? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my GMC C3500 to high mileage oil? If your GMC C3500 has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can GMC dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your GMC C3500 in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
