What is the maintenance schedule for the 1986 Buick LeSabre?
You want your Buick LeSabre to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your LeSabre has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine LeSabre maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1986 Buick LeSabre!
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; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your LeSabre running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1986 Buick LeSabre problems.
Bring your 1986 Buick LeSabre to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your LeSabre. 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 1986 Buick LeSabre. 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your LeSabre 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 Buick LeSabre 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. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your LeSabre stranded. Your Buick LeSabre could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 1986 Buick LeSabre's engine run smoother.

Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. 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 1986 Buick LeSabre.
