What to Know About 1990 Suzuki Samurai Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Suzuki Samurai and it'll take care of you. 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? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Samurai maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1990 Suzuki Samurai!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Suzuki, 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; 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. 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 1990 Suzuki Samurai problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Suzuki Samurai Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1990 Suzuki Samurai for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. 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.

Could your 1990 Suzuki Samurai be ready for a new battery? 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 Suzuki Samurai battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Samurai) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Suzuki Samurai 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1990 Suzuki Samurai running newer, longer. To learn how often Suzuki recommends you have the oil changed in your 1990 Samurai, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. 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 1990 Suzuki Samurai.

Routine upkeep for your Suzuki Samurai suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Suzuki Samurai 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. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Suzuki Samurai's steering and suspension system.

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. Need a new Suzuki Samurai radiator? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 1990 Suzuki Samurai maintenance.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Suzuki Samurai? 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 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!
  •  Why are my Suzuki dashboard lights on? 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 Suzuki Samurai to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
