Your Guide to 1988 Isuzu Impulse Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Isuzu Impulse and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Impulse could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Impulse, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1988 Isuzu Impulse!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Isuzu, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Impulse perform better, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 1988 Isuzu Impulse problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Isuzu Impulse Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1988 Isuzu Impulse for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Impulse's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 1988 Isuzu Impulse 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). 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 Isuzu Impulse 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty Impulse) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Isuzu Impulse 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 1988 Isuzu Impulse engine. See Isuzu's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1988 Impulse 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 1988 Isuzu Impulse.

Routine upkeep for your Isuzu Impulse suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Isuzu Impulse steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Isuzu Impulse's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Isuzu Impulse maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Isuzu Impulse cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Isuzu Impulse? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 1988 Isuzu Impulse maintenance and repairs.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Isuzu Impulse? You know your Isuzu Impulse better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving.
