Here’s Why 1997 Toyota Camry Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Toyota Camry and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Camry has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. 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 Camry maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 1997 Toyota Camry maintenance schedule!

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; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Camry perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1997 Toyota Camry problems later.

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1997 Toyota Camry and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1997 Toyota Camry. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Toyota Camry battery. 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. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Camry stranded. Your Toyota Camry won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1997 Toyota Camry engine.

  • What should I do after hitting 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 I ignore dashboard lights on my Toyota? 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.
