What is the maintenance schedule for the 1987 Buick Skylark?
You want your Buick Skylark to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Skylark. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Skylark, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1987 Buick Skylark maintenance schedule!
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 oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Skylark's life, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1987 Buick Skylark problems later.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1987 Buick Skylark for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 Skylark's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Skylark) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Buick Skylark could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
