Maintenance for Your 1989 Toyota Corolla

What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1989 Toyota Corolla?

Here’s Why 1989 Toyota Corolla Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Toyota Corolla and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Corolla. 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 Corolla maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1989 Toyota Corolla!

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; 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. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Corolla running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1989 Toyota Corolla problems.

Overview of Essential Toyota Corolla Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1989 Toyota Corolla for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Corolla. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1989 Toyota Corolla? In general, car batteries only last three to 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 Corolla 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 Corolla stranded. Your Toyota Corolla could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1989 Toyota Corolla engine. See Toyota's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1989 Corolla 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. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1989 Toyota Corolla.

Maintaining your Toyota Corolla 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. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Toyota Corolla steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Toyota Corolla's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Toyota Corolla services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). 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 Corolla’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your Toyota Corolla radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too.

Questions About 1989 Toyota Corolla Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 1989 Toyota Corolla. Get answers to common Toyota Corolla maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Toyota Corolla? 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 Corolla 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 Corolla engines.
  • 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 Corolla to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
