What is the maintenance schedule for the 1987 Subaru RX?

Your Guide to 1987 Subaru RX Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Subaru RX and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your RX 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. There's no need to guess when it's time to get RX maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1987 Subaru RX!

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. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your RX's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1987 Subaru RX problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Subaru RX Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 1987 Subaru RX to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 RX. 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 RX. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Subaru RX battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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. 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 RX could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1987 Subaru RX engine. See Subaru's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1987 RX 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. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1987 Subaru RX? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Subaru RX can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Subaru RX 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. Components within your Subaru RX's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Subaru RX services, 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 Subaru RX engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is your Subaru RX radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it.

  • When should I have Subaru RX alignment checked? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 1987 RX is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Subaru RX? If your Subaru RX 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!
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Subaru? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Subaru RX to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
