What is the maintenance schedule for the 1996 Toyota Camry?

What to Know About 1996 Toyota Camry Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Toyota Camry to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your Camry has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get Camry maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1996 Toyota Camry!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Toyota, 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 oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Camry perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1996 Toyota Camry problems in the future.

Bring your 1996 Toyota Camry to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with 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 Camry's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 1996 Toyota Camry be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Camry may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Toyota Camry 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Camry stranded. Your Toyota Camry won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1996 Toyota Camry engine. See Toyota's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1996 Camry 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. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1996 Toyota Camry.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Toyota Camry can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Toyota Camry suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Toyota Camry's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Toyota Camry 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. 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 Toyota Camry’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Need a new Toyota Camry radiator? We got it. 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 1996 Toyota Camry maintenance.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Toyota Camry? 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 Toyota Camry need high mileage oil? If your Toyota Camry 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 Toyota dashboard warning lights wait? 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 Toyota Camry to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
