This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, GMC themselves.

Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your S15 Jimmy running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1983 GMC S15 Jimmy problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your GMC S15 Jimmy Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1983 GMC S15 Jimmy for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your S15 Jimmy's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 1983 GMC S15 Jimmy be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your S15 Jimmy may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your GMC S15 Jimmy 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 S15 Jimmy won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1983 GMC S15 Jimmy engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1983 S15 Jimmy. 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1983 GMC S15 Jimmy? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your GMC S15 Jimmy suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform GMC S15 Jimmy suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your GMC S15 Jimmy's steering and suspension system.
