Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your GMC Savana 1500

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1999 GMC Savana 1500 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 Savana 1500’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 1999 GMC Savana 1500 be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your GMC Savana 1500 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. 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 Savana 1500 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 1999 GMC Savana 1500 running newer, longer. To learn how often GMC recommends you have the oil changed in your 1999 Savana 1500, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1999 GMC Savana 1500.

These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your GMC Savana 1500's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine GMC Savana 1500 maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally.

Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire GMC Savana 1500 cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new GMC Savana 1500 radiator?
