Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Cadillac Cimarron Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 1986 Cadillac Cimarron to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Cimarron. 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 1986 Cadillac Cimarron. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Cimarron may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Cadillac Cimarron battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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. 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 Cadillac Cimarron won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 1986 Cadillac Cimarron's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1986 Cimarron. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1986 Cadillac Cimarron.
