Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1997 GMC K1500!
This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, GMC themselves.

Bring your 1997 GMC K1500 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1997 GMC K1500. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your GMC K1500 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 K1500 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 1997 GMC K1500 engine. To learn how often GMC recommends you have the oil changed in your 1997 K1500, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle.
