Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your GMC S15 Jimmy

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1984 GMC S15 Jimmy and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your S15 Jimmy.

We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Could your 1984 GMC S15 Jimmy be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every 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 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. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty S15 Jimmy) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your GMC S15 Jimmy 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1984 GMC S15 Jimmy running newer, longer. To learn how often GMC recommends you have the oil changed in your 1984 S15 Jimmy, check out the information table at the beginning of this page.

We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1984 GMC S15 Jimmy.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my GMC S15 Jimmy? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When does my GMC S15 Jimmy need high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older GMC S15 Jimmy engines.
  • Can GMC dashboard warning lights wait? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should.
