How often should I service my 1985 Mercury Grand Marquis?
You want your Mercury Grand Marquis to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Grand Marquis could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Grand Marquis maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 1985 Mercury Grand Marquis maintenance schedule!
Mercury 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. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Grand Marquis running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1985 Mercury Grand Marquis problems in the future.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1985 Mercury Grand Marquis and our technicians will jump right in with 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 Grand Marquis's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.
Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1985 Mercury Grand Marquis. If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Grand Marquis may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Mercury Grand Marquis 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. 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 Mercury Grand Marquis won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1985 Mercury Grand Marquis engine. See Mercury's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1985 Grand Marquis 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. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1985 Mercury Grand Marquis.
