Just follow your 1991 GMC Safari maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, GMC themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Safari's life, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1991 GMC Safari problems in the future.

Overview of Essential GMC Safari Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1991 GMC Safari and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 Safari's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 1991 GMC Safari 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 Safari may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your GMC Safari 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 Safari) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your GMC Safari could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1991 GMC Safari engine. See GMC's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1991 Safari in the chart at the top of this page. 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 1991 GMC Safari.

Routine upkeep for your GMC Safari suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform GMC Safari suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your GMC Safari's steering and suspension system.

1991 GMC Safari Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 1991 GMC Safari. Get answers to common GMC Safari maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my GMC Safari? You know your GMC Safari better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When does my GMC Safari need high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older GMC Safari engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my GMC? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your GMC Safari to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
