How often should I service my 1991 GMC Jimmy?
Take care of your GMC Jimmy and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Jimmy. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Jimmy maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1991 GMC Jimmy!
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. 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; however, recommended maintenance usually includes 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 Jimmy running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1991 GMC Jimmy problems in the future.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1991 GMC Jimmy for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Jimmy's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.
Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1991 GMC Jimmy. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Jimmy may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your GMC Jimmy 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 Jimmy 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 prevent premature wear on your 1991 GMC Jimmy engine. See GMC's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1991 Jimmy in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. 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 1991 GMC Jimmy.
Maintaining your GMC Jimmy steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform GMC Jimmy suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your GMC Jimmy's steering system require regular maintenance.
If you fall behind on routine GMC Jimmy maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally!
