What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1987 Buick Riviera?
When it comes to your Buick Riviera, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Riviera. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Riviera, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1987 Buick Riviera maintenance schedule!
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. 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 oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Riviera running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1987 Buick Riviera problems.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1987 Buick Riviera 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Riviera's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.
Could your 1987 Buick Riviera be ready for a new battery? 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 Riviera battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. 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 Riviera won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1987 Buick Riviera engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1987 Riviera. 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 1987 Buick Riviera.
Periodic service to the steering system in your Buick Riviera can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Buick Riviera suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Buick Riviera's steering system require regular maintenance.
Without routine Buick Riviera 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.
