Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1996 GMC Savana 2500 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Savana 2500. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Could your 1996 GMC Savana 2500 be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Savana 2500 may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your GMC Savana 2500 battery. 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Savana 2500 stranded. Your GMC Savana 2500 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1996 GMC Savana 2500 engine.
