What to Know About 1991 Volkswagen Vanagon Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Volkswagen Vanagon to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Vanagon. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Vanagon maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1991 Volkswagen Vanagon!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Volkswagen, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; 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 Vanagon running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1991 Volkswagen Vanagon problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Volkswagen Vanagon Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1991 Volkswagen Vanagon for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Vanagon's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1991 Volkswagen Vanagon? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Vanagon 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 Volkswagen Vanagon 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 Volkswagen Vanagon 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 1991 Volkswagen Vanagon engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1991 Vanagon. 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1991 Volkswagen Vanagon? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Volkswagen Vanagon steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Volkswagen Vanagon steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Volkswagen Vanagon's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Volkswagen Vanagon maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Volkswagen Vanagon cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Volkswagen Vanagon radiator in need of replacement? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 1991 Volkswagen Vanagon maintenance.
