What to Know About 1990 Buick Regal Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Buick Regal to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Regal. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Regal, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1990 Buick Regal!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Buick, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Regal's life, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1990 Buick Regal problems.

Overview of Essential Buick Regal Maintenance Needs

Bring your 1990 Buick Regal to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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 Regal. 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 1990 Buick Regal be ready for a new battery? 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 Regal battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! 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 Regal 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 1990 Buick Regal running newer, longer. To learn how often Buick recommends you have the oil changed in your 1990 Regal, 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. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1990 Buick Regal? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Buick Regal steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide the appropriate Buick Regal 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. Components within your Buick Regal's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Buick Regal maintenance, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Buick Regal’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Buick Regal? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Buick Regal? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my Buick Regal to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Buick Regal engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Buick? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Buick Regal to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
