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

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1987 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 1987 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your GMC S15 Jimmy battery. 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 be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1987 GMC S15 Jimmy running newer, longer. See GMC's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1987 S15 Jimmy 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 1987 GMC S15 Jimmy?
