How often should I service my 1983 GMC S15?
Take care of your GMC S15 and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your S15 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your S15, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1983 GMC S15 maintenance schedule!
The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by GMC, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes.

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1983 GMC S15 and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your S15's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.
Could your 1983 GMC S15 be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your GMC S15 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 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1983 GMC S15's engine run smoother.
