Getting your 1990 K3500’s brakes checked before trouble starts is a good idea. There's no need to wait for a problem. We offer free brake inspections as a benefit to all of our customers so that we can help prevent problems from starting in the first place. You can request a free brake check as a standalone service or in addition to work you're already having done on your GMC, like a battery replacement. If life has gotten in the way of everyday car care, keep the following brake information in mind.
Signs of brake problems include weird noises, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell around the tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or a sensation that things aren't like they used to be. You know your GMC K3500 best. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. Vehicle manufacturers like GMC generally recommend that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. That also includes checking the e-brake. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. When in doubt, visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection. All of our 1,700+ locations offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our expert technicians are happy to examine your 1990 GMC K3500 brakes, brake pads, and other braking components. Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.
How often do 1990 GMC K3500 brake pads need to be replaced? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles. If you drive mostly on the highway and tend to brake smoothly (as opposed to slamming on the brakes), your brake pads may last longer. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your K3500. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for GMC K3500s that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your K3500, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass GMC’s standards.
Your GMC K3500 engine may be strong and reliable. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can’t brake, it might as well be scrap metal. Don't wait if you're experiencing brake squeaks or a loss of braking power. Safe driving and responsive brakes go hand in hand. Plus, waiting can lead to more expensive parts wearing out and requiring replacement. For example, rotors start to warp and become damaged when completely worn brake pads exceed their lifespan, and the metal-to-metal grinding may compromise other healthy parts. Our technicians work to prevent more brake damage. Visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for the right brake repair for your 1990 GMC K3500. Our brake repair services include brake pad/shoe replacement, brake rotor/drum resurfacing, brake fluid exchange, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder service.
