How often should I service my 1991 GMC K3500?
You want your GMC K3500 to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your K3500 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine K3500 maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1991 GMC K3500!
The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by GMC, your vehicle manufacturer. 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 tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your K3500's life, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1991 GMC K3500 problems in the future.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1991 GMC K3500 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. 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 1991 GMC K3500 be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to 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. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your K3500 stranded. Your GMC K3500 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1991 GMC K3500 engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1991 K3500. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. 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 1991 GMC K3500.

This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication.
