What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1985 Buick Skyhawk?
Take care of your Buick Skyhawk and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your Skyhawk could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Skyhawk, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1985 Buick Skyhawk maintenance schedule!
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; 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. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Skyhawk perform better, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1985 Buick Skyhawk problems in the future.
Bring your 1985 Buick Skyhawk 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 Skyhawk. 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 1985 Buick Skyhawk. 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Buick Skyhawk 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. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Skyhawk stranded. Your Buick Skyhawk won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1985 Buick Skyhawk running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1985 Skyhawk. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil.

When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Buick Skyhawk steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Buick Skyhawk's steering system require regular maintenance.
If you skip recommended Buick Skyhawk services, 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.
