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. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your K3500 perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1988 GMC K3500 problems later.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1988 GMC K3500 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check.

Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your K3500's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.
Could your 1988 GMC K3500 be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your K3500 may need a replacement battery sooner. 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 K3500 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 K3500 stranded. Your GMC K3500 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1988 GMC K3500 engine.

Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle.
