Scheduled Maintenance for Your 1998 Toyota Corolla

What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1998 Toyota Corolla?

Here’s Why 1998 Toyota Corolla Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Toyota Corolla, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Corolla could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get Corolla maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1998 Toyota Corolla!

Toyota knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes 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, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1998 Toyota Corolla problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Toyota Corolla

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1998 Toyota Corolla for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1998 Toyota Corolla. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Corolla may need a replacement battery sooner. 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. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Toyota Corolla won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 1998 Toyota Corolla's engine run smoother. To learn how often Toyota recommends you have the oil changed in your 1998 Corolla, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1998 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.

This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Toyota Corolla's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Toyota Corolla maintenance, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car.

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.
