What to Know About 1985 Mazda GLC Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Mazda GLC and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your GLC has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your GLC, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1985 Mazda GLC!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Mazda, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, recommended maintenance usually includes 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 GLC perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1985 Mazda GLC problems.

Overview of Essential Mazda GLC Maintenance Needs

Bring your 1985 Mazda GLC to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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 GLC’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1985 Mazda GLC. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your GLC may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Mazda GLC battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. 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 Mazda GLC could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1985 Mazda GLC's engine run smoother. See Mazda's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1985 GLC in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. 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 1985 Mazda GLC.

Maintaining your Mazda GLC steering and suspension 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. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform Mazda GLC suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Mazda GLC's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Mazda GLC maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Mazda GLC engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Mazda GLC radiator? We can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Mazda GLC? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Mazda GLC? If your Mazda GLC 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!
  •  Why are my Mazda dashboard lights on? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Mazda GLC, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
