What to Know About 1987 Suzuki Samurai Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Suzuki Samurai, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Samurai. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get Samurai maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1987 Suzuki Samurai!

Suzuki 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, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Samurai perform better, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1987 Suzuki Samurai problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Suzuki Samurai Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1987 Suzuki Samurai 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 Samurai's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1987 Suzuki Samurai? In general, car batteries only last three to 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 Suzuki Samurai 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 Samurai) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Suzuki Samurai won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1987 Suzuki Samurai's engine run smoother. See Suzuki's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1987 Samurai in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. 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 1987 Suzuki Samurai? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Suzuki Samurai can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. 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, perform Suzuki Samurai 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 Suzuki Samurai's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Suzuki Samurai maintenance, 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 Suzuki Samurai engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Suzuki Samurai? We can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it.

  • When should I have Suzuki Samurai alignment checked? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 1987 Samurai is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When does my Suzuki Samurai need high mileage oil? If your Suzuki Samurai 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 Suzuki? 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 Suzuki Samurai, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
