What to Know About 1986 Chrysler Laser Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Chrysler Laser, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your Laser has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Laser, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1986 Chrysler Laser maintenance schedule!

Chrysler 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. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Laser perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1986 Chrysler Laser problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Chrysler Laser

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1986 Chrysler Laser for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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 Laser'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 1986 Chrysler Laser? In general, car batteries only last 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 Chrysler Laser 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 Chrysler Laser could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

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 1986 Chrysler Laser 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 1986 Laser. 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 1986 Chrysler Laser? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Chrysler Laser suspension and steering system 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. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Chrysler Laser steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Chrysler Laser's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Chrysler Laser maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally!

1986 Chrysler Laser Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 1986 Chrysler Laser. Get answers to common Chrysler Laser maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Chrysler Laser? 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 should I use high mileage oil in my Chrysler Laser? 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 Laser engines.
  • Can Chrysler dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Chrysler Laser in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
