Just follow your 2000 GMC K3500 maintenance schedule!
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 tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes.

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2000 GMC K3500 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.

Could your 2000 GMC K3500 be ready for a new battery? 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your GMC K3500 battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 K3500 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 2000 GMC K3500 engine. See GMC's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2000 K3500 in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2000 GMC K3500? We can help with that, too!
