What is the maintenance schedule for the 1989 GMC S15?
When it comes to your GMC S15, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your S15 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get S15 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 1989 GMC S15 maintenance schedule!
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, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your S15 running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1989 GMC S15 problems in the future.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1989 GMC S15 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. 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 1989 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your S15 may need a replacement battery sooner. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the 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! 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 1989 GMC S15 running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1989 S15. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1989 GMC S15.
