Essential Maintenance to Keep Your GMC R1500 Suburban Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1991 GMC R1500 Suburban for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your R1500 Suburban. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades.

Could your 1991 GMC R1500 Suburban be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your GMC R1500 Suburban battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty R1500 Suburban) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your GMC R1500 Suburban won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1991 GMC R1500 Suburban running newer, longer. See GMC's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1991 R1500 Suburban in the chart at the top of this page.
