How often should I service my 1999 GMC K1500?
You want your GMC K1500 to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your K1500 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your K1500, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1999 GMC K1500!
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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your K1500's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1999 GMC K1500 problems in the future.
Bring your 1999 GMC K1500 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your K1500. 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.
Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1999 GMC K1500. 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 K1500 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 K1500 stranded. Your GMC K1500 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1999 GMC K1500 running newer, longer. To learn how often GMC recommends you have the oil changed in your 1999 K1500, 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 1999 GMC K1500.
