What to Know About 1996 Buick Park Avenue Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Buick Park Avenue, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Park Avenue has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Park Avenue maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1996 Buick Park Avenue!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Buick 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 fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Park Avenue perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1996 Buick Park Avenue problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Buick Park Avenue

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1996 Buick Park Avenue for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Park Avenue. 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.

Could your 1996 Buick Park Avenue 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Park Avenue 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 Park Avenue 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty Park Avenue) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Buick Park Avenue won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1996 Buick Park Avenue running newer, longer. To learn how often Buick recommends you have the oil changed in your 1996 Park Avenue, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. 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 can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1996 Buick Park Avenue.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Buick Park Avenue 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, provide Buick Park Avenue steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Buick Park Avenue's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Buick Park Avenue maintenance, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car.

At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Buick Park Avenue engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning.
