What is the maintenance schedule for the 1985 GMC S15?
When it comes to your GMC S15, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your S15 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get S15 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1985 GMC S15!
GMC knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. 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 tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your S15 running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1985 GMC S15 problems in the future.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1985 GMC S15 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your S15’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.
Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1985 GMC S15. 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). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your GMC S15 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) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your GMC S15 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1985 GMC S15 running newer, longer.
