Overview of Essential GMC Jimmy Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1984 GMC Jimmy 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 Jimmy’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1984 GMC Jimmy. 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). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your GMC Jimmy 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 Jimmy stranded. Your GMC Jimmy won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 1984 GMC Jimmy's engine run smoother. To learn how often GMC recommends you have the oil changed in your 1984 Jimmy, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. 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 1984 GMC Jimmy.

Routine upkeep for your GMC Jimmy suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate GMC Jimmy steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your GMC Jimmy's steering and suspension system.

Without routine GMC Jimmy maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your GMC Jimmy engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new GMC Jimmy radiator? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1984 GMC Jimmy maintenance.
