What to Know About 1998 Toyota Camry Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Toyota Camry and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your Camry could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Camry maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1998 Toyota Camry!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Toyota themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; 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 Camry running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1998 Toyota Camry problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Toyota Camry

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1998 Toyota Camry and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Camry’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 1998 Toyota Camry be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and 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 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 be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1998 Toyota Camry running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1998 Camry. 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 1998 Toyota Camry.

Maintaining your Toyota Camry steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide the appropriate Toyota Camry 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Toyota Camry's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Toyota Camry maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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.
