What to Know About 1998 Subaru Impreza Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Subaru Impreza to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your Impreza could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Impreza maintenance. Just follow your 1998 Subaru Impreza maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Subaru themselves. 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. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Impreza's life, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 1998 Subaru Impreza problems.

Overview of Essential Subaru Impreza Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1998 Subaru Impreza for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Impreza. 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 1998 Subaru Impreza. In general, car batteries only last 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 Impreza 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. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Impreza stranded. Your Subaru Impreza could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1998 Subaru Impreza running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1998 Impreza. 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1998 Subaru Impreza? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Subaru Impreza suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!).

You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Subaru Impreza steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Subaru Impreza's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Subaru Impreza maintenance, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Subaru Impreza cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Subaru Impreza radiator? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 1998 Subaru Impreza maintenance.

Questions About 1998 Subaru Impreza Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 1998 Subaru Impreza. Get answers to common Subaru Impreza maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Subaru Impreza alignment checked? 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 does my Subaru Impreza need 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 Impreza engines.
  •  Why are my Subaru dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Subaru Impreza 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.
