Scheduled Maintenance for Your 1987 Subaru DL

What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1987 Subaru DL?

Your Guide to 1987 Subaru DL Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Subaru DL to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your DL could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get DL maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1987 Subaru DL!

Subaru knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your DL perform better, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 1987 Subaru DL problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Subaru DL

Bring your 1987 Subaru DL to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your DL. 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1987 Subaru DL. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Subaru DL 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. 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 Subaru DL 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 prevent premature wear on your 1987 Subaru DL engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1987 DL. 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1987 Subaru DL? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Subaru DL suspension and steering 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. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Subaru DL steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Subaru DL's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Subaru DL maintenance, 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!). 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 Subaru DL engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Subaru DL radiator? We got it. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 1987 Subaru DL maintenance and repairs.

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

1987 Subaru DL Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 1987 Subaru DL. Get answers to common Subaru DL maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Subaru DL alignment checked? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 1987 DL is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When should I switch my Subaru DL to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Subaru DL engines.
  • Can Subaru dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Subaru DL 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.
