Your Guide to 1995 GMC Safari Scheduled Maintenance

You want your GMC Safari to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Safari has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get Safari maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1995 GMC Safari!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by GMC, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Safari perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1995 GMC Safari problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your GMC Safari

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1995 GMC Safari for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1995 GMC Safari. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. 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 Safari battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Safari) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your GMC Safari won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1995 GMC Safari 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 1995 Safari. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1995 GMC Safari.

This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication.

  • 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 should I use high mileage oil in my GMC Safari? If your GMC Safari has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my GMC? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your GMC Safari in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
