Here’s Why 1988 Toyota Land Cruiser Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Toyota Land Cruiser to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your Land Cruiser has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. 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 Land Cruiser maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1988 Toyota Land Cruiser!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Toyota, your vehicle manufacturer. 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. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Land Cruiser's life, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 1988 Toyota Land Cruiser problems.

Overview of Essential Toyota Land Cruiser Maintenance Needs

Bring your 1988 Toyota Land Cruiser to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 Land Cruiser’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1988 Toyota Land Cruiser? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Land Cruiser may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Toyota Land Cruiser 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 Land Cruiser stranded. Your Toyota Land Cruiser 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 1988 Toyota Land Cruiser engine.
