What is the maintenance schedule for the 1988 Buick Century?
Take care of your Buick Century and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your Century could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get Century 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 Buick Century!
Buick knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Century perform better, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1988 Buick Century problems later.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1988 Buick Century 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 Century. 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.
Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1988 Buick Century. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Buick Century battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Century stranded. Your Buick Century won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1988 Buick Century'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 1988 Century. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1988 Buick Century.
