Your Guide to 1998 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. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Park Avenue. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Park Avenue, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1998 Buick Park Avenue!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Buick, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; 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. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Park Avenue perform better, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1998 Buick Park Avenue problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Buick Park Avenue Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 1998 Buick Park Avenue to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Park Avenue's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1998 Buick Park Avenue. Batteries generally need to be replaced every 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 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 be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1998 Buick Park Avenue running newer, longer. See Buick's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1998 Park Avenue in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. 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 1998 Buick Park Avenue.

Routine upkeep for your Buick Park Avenue suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Buick Park Avenue steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Buick Park Avenue's steering system with regular maintenance.
