What is the maintenance schedule for the 1987 Buick Century?
You want your Buick Century to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Century. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Century, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1987 Buick Century!
The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Buick, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Century's life, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1987 Buick Century problems.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1987 Buick Century for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Century’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.
Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1987 Buick Century? In general, car batteries only last three to 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Buick Century battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. 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 Buick Century 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1987 Buick Century running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1987 Century. 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. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1987 Buick Century.
