Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1997 Toyota Land Cruiser and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check.

Could your 1997 Toyota Land Cruiser 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). 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. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! 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.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 1997 Toyota Land Cruiser's engine run smoother. See Toyota's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1997 Land Cruiser in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. 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 1997 Toyota Land Cruiser.
