What to Know About 2008 GMC Canyon Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your GMC Canyon and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Canyon has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Canyon, 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 2008 GMC Canyon!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by GMC, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; 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 Canyon running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2008 GMC Canyon problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your GMC Canyon Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2008 GMC Canyon and our technicians will jump right in with 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 Canyon’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2008 GMC Canyon 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). 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your GMC Canyon 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 Canyon stranded. Your GMC Canyon won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2008 GMC Canyon engine. To learn how often GMC recommends you have the oil changed in your 2008 Canyon, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. 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 2008 GMC Canyon.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my GMC Canyon? 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 does my GMC Canyon need high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your GMC Canyon? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  •  Why are my GMC dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your GMC Canyon 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.
