How often should I service my 1988 Acura Integra?
Take care of your Acura Integra and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Integra could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. 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 Integra maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1988 Acura Integra!
The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Acura, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; 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 Integra running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1988 Acura Integra problems later.
Bring your 1988 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Integra’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.
Could your 1988 Acura Integra 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Acura Integra battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Integra) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Acura Integra won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1988 Acura Integra engine. To learn how often Acura recommends you have the oil changed in your 1988 Integra, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. 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.
