How often should I service my 1988 GMC S15 Jimmy?
Take care of your GMC S15 Jimmy and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your S15 Jimmy has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your S15 Jimmy, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1988 GMC S15 Jimmy maintenance schedule!
The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by GMC, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your S15 Jimmy's life, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1988 GMC S15 Jimmy problems.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1988 GMC S15 Jimmy 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. 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.
Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1988 GMC S15 Jimmy. 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. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! 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.
In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1988 GMC S15 Jimmy engine. See GMC's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1988 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. 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 1988 GMC S15 Jimmy? We can help with that, too!
