Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1996 Chrysler Cirrus!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Chrysler themselves.

Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Cirrus's life, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1996 Chrysler Cirrus problems.

Overview of Essential Chrysler Cirrus Maintenance Needs

Bring your 1996 Chrysler Cirrus to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Cirrus's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1996 Chrysler Cirrus? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Cirrus may need a replacement battery sooner. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Chrysler Cirrus battery. 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. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Cirrus) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Chrysler Cirrus 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 1996 Chrysler Cirrus 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 1996 Cirrus. 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1996 Chrysler Cirrus? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Chrysler Cirrus can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Chrysler Cirrus steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Chrysler Cirrus's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Chrysler Cirrus maintenance, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. 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 Chrysler Cirrus’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Need a new Chrysler Cirrus radiator? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1996 Chrysler Cirrus maintenance.

1996 Chrysler Cirrus Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 1996 Chrysler Cirrus. Get answers to common Chrysler Cirrus maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Chrysler Cirrus? 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 does my Chrysler Cirrus need 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 Chrysler Cirrus engines.
  •  Why are my Chrysler dashboard lights on? 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 Chrysler Cirrus to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
