Essential Maintenance to Keep Your GMC R3500 Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1991 GMC R3500 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 R3500's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1991 GMC R3500? 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 R3500 battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty R3500) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your GMC R3500 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 1991 GMC R3500's engine run smoother. See GMC's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1991 R3500 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. 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 R3500.

Periodic service to the steering system in your GMC R3500 can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle.
