Your Guide to 1998 Suzuki Swift Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Suzuki Swift to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Swift. 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 Swift 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 1998 Suzuki Swift!

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; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Swift running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1998 Suzuki Swift problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Suzuki Swift Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1998 Suzuki Swift for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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 Swift. 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.

Could your 1998 Suzuki Swift be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Suzuki Swift battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 Suzuki Swift won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 1998 Suzuki Swift's engine run smoother. See Suzuki's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1998 Swift 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. 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 1998 Suzuki Swift.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Suzuki Swift 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! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Suzuki Swift 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 Swift's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Suzuki Swift maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Suzuki Swift’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Need a new Suzuki Swift radiator? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 1998 Suzuki Swift maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

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

  • When should I have Suzuki Swift 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 should I use high mileage oil in my Suzuki Swift? If your Suzuki Swift 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 Swift, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
