What to Know About 1985 Toyota Pickup Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Toyota Pickup 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 Pickup. 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 Pickup maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1985 Toyota Pickup!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Toyota, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Pickup perform better, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1985 Toyota Pickup problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Toyota Pickup

Bring your 1985 Toyota Pickup to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Pickup. 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.

Could your 1985 Toyota Pickup 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). There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. 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 Pickup 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 Pickup stranded. Your Toyota Pickup won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1985 Toyota Pickup engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1985 Pickup. 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1985 Toyota Pickup? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Toyota Pickup can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Toyota Pickup steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Toyota Pickup's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine Toyota Pickup maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Toyota Pickup cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Toyota Pickup? We got it. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Toyota Pickup? You know your Toyota Pickup better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Toyota Pickup? If your Toyota Pickup has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can Toyota dashboard warning lights wait? 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 Pickup, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
