How often should I service my 1986 Acura Integra?
Take care of your Acura Integra and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your Integra could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Integra maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1986 Acura Integra!
This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Acura themselves. 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 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 Integra running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1986 Acura Integra problems later.
Bring your 1986 Acura Integra to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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 Integra's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.
Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1986 Acura Integra. 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 Acura Integra 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 Acura Integra 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 1986 Acura Integra's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1986 Integra. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1986 Acura Integra.
Routine upkeep for your Acura Integra suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Acura Integra suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Acura Integra's steering system with regular maintenance.
If you fall behind on routine Acura Integra 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 Acura Integra cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Acura Integra radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 1986 Acura Integra maintenance.
