How often should I service my 1999 GMC Jimmy?
When it comes to your GMC Jimmy, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Jimmy 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. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Jimmy maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 1999 GMC Jimmy maintenance schedule!
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; 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 Jimmy running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1999 GMC Jimmy problems in the future.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1999 GMC Jimmy 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Jimmy. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.
Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1999 GMC Jimmy? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Jimmy may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall 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 even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1999 GMC Jimmy engine. See GMC's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1999 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. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1999 GMC Jimmy.
Periodic service to the steering system in your GMC Jimmy 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. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system 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.
If you fall behind on routine GMC Jimmy maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally.

Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire GMC Jimmy cooling, heating, and climate control system.
