When it comes to your GMC C3500, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance.

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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your C3500 running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1998 GMC C3500 problems later.

Overview of Essential GMC C3500 Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1998 GMC C3500 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with 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. 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.

Could your 1998 GMC C3500 be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. 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. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty C3500) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your GMC C3500 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1998 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 1998 C3500. 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 1998 GMC C3500.
