What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1998 GMC Jimmy?
Take care of your GMC Jimmy and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Jimmy has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? 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 1998 GMC Jimmy!
The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by GMC, your vehicle manufacturer. 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 tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Jimmy's life, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 1998 GMC Jimmy problems.
Bring your 1998 GMC Jimmy to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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. 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 1998 GMC Jimmy. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. 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 Jimmy 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. 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 be going anywhere without a strong battery.
Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 1998 GMC Jimmy's engine run smoother.

Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1998 GMC Jimmy.
