Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1997 Toyota Celica? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Celica may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Toyota Celica battery. 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 Celica) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Toyota Celica could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1997 Toyota Celica engine. To learn how often Toyota recommends you have the oil changed in your 1997 Celica, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1997 Toyota Celica? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Toyota Celica steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!).

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Toyota Celica? 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 switch my Toyota Celica to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Toyota Celica engines.
  •  Why are my Toyota dashboard lights on? 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 Toyota Celica, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
