Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1988 GMC G2500 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 G2500's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 1988 GMC G2500 be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years.

Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty G2500) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your GMC G2500 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
