The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Chrysler, your vehicle manufacturer. 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; 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.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Chrysler LeBaron Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1986 Chrysler LeBaron 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 LeBaron's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 1986 Chrysler LeBaron be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last 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 Chrysler LeBaron battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your LeBaron stranded. Your Chrysler LeBaron 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1986 Chrysler LeBaron running newer, longer. See Chrysler's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1986 LeBaron in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1986 Chrysler LeBaron.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Chrysler LeBaron? You know your Chrysler LeBaron better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When does my Chrysler LeBaron need high mileage oil? If your Chrysler LeBaron has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Chrysler? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Chrysler LeBaron, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
